Postage People

Sound odd?...it's not.  Just a wonderful ATC challenge set by Marion Bockelmann each year. It's such fun that I can't resist.  We have to make three ATCs using postage stamp 'heads'.  I did four, one is a gift for Marion....her choice.

Here are the ones I've sent:





You can see other participants on Marion's dedicated  Pinterest board.

I've done others in the past for various swaps.  These are some:













You can see why I can't resist.  What fun!

  2. What a fine collection of postage art...
    clearly you started and can't stop Jo and I Love it!
    Marion's comment is funny and so is your skellie card (there have just been commemorations recently marking 150 years since his assassination at the end of the American Civil War)
    Sorry don't know why I interjected history here.
    It's been awhile since I tried my hand at postage people.
    Your work is all great!

  3. You always do such a good job with these. I've tried myself and not been real happy with my results. I really like your cyclist this year.

  11. Hi Jo, thanks for your message. The ATC you asked is free and I'm delighted to swap it with you.
    If your 'Elizabeth austrlia22' is free, I would take it, if not the 'cyclist' could be great.
    Greetings,
