So I went out of town for a few days last week and when I returned I had four new cards waiting for me from Kat Sloma’s postcard swap! Woohoo! That makes the full six for the swap. The first time I did this, only four cards made it to my house. You can read about the cards I sent in to share here and about the first two cards I received here.
My last batch was such a mixed bag of goodies. The first came all the way from Mary Jane in Brisbane, Australia. Since I had just returned from a few days in San Diego, this one of the “Surf Lifesavers” really made me smile. I guess even lifeguards (as we call them in The States) like to enjoy the ocean view as well. At least, I’d like to think they’re enjoying the view and not deciding if someone needs rescuing. Ack. I really love the inclusion of the flag as well.
Another card was from Ariel Sublett who is from Las Vegas. The detail and thought in her art is just lovely. Her card is faith based and she states on the back that she “used the 7th principle of the Unitarian universalism as inspiration: Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” The quote from Francis David on the back is so lovely. “We need not think alike to love alike.” Amen to that, Ariel!
Card Three is titled “Ominous” and came from Marcia Hill in Vermont. Her handmade card is a real photo on cardstock. What a treat! Just beautiful. A cool thing about this card was that it was postmarked from the National Postal Museum Station at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. Thanks, Kat! That was brilliant of you. And thank you to whomever mailed them all from there. That was no small job, I’m sure.
And lastly, I received the lovely “Layered Autumn” from our most generous host, Kat Sloma.
Thank you, Kat for your time, talent and organization skills beyond compare. This has been so much fun. Thanks for inspiring us to get our work into a sharable format. Being a photographer, it’s always such a treat to connect with other artists who work in other mediums. I’m always so impressed with the work that people share. Click below to blog hop to other artists who participated. There is a lot more art to see. See you all next year!!

The postman was good to you! Great selection of cards … each so different. Isn’t this fun?! I’m already looking forward to next year!
He was! 🙂 I skipped last year and I’m so glad I came back this year.
Wonderful cards you received! It was a great swap, wasn’t it?
Lovely to meet you and Happy Easter from England x
It was so much fun. Happy Easter to you as well!
beautiful cards you got Kris!
I got a good batch this year. I really love your umbrellas. XOXO
I love when I see postcards I haven’t seen on the FB page…so fun to see more of the art that was liberated. It also gives me hope I’ll find mine somewhere here. Have a wonderfully creative year and I’ll see you next time!
I’ve only found two of mine, Suzette. And those were on FB. Nothing yet on the hop. There’s still time though. I hope yours turn up. Let me know if you head down Houston-bound.
sweet collection, I love the little floating umbrellas.
Aren’t those just so cute?! See you next time.
You have some wonderful cards!
Indeed! I scored big this year. 🙂
Wow, I love the one with the crazy sky, first time I saw that one on the hop.
Isn’t that amazing! It’s even more impressive in real life. The web doesn’t do it justice.
You received such beautiful cards! Love how you displayed them!
Thank you, my sweet friend. High praise coming from you. xoxo
Nice and diverse selection of cards.
Aren’t they! And I feel like they all kind of belong together as well. 🙂 See you next year!!
Lovely collection of art! xoxo
I got some good ones this year for sure. Wishing I’d gotten one of your lovelies, but one cannot be greedy! Happy Easter, dear friend. xoxo

I love how all of your cards are tied through color. Almost as if they were meant to be together! Hope to see you in the swap next year, I would love to receive one of your cards. I loved “the Bride” and also the sunset with the bird perfectly positioned.. well, what am i saying, I loved them all. Happy creating to you Kris!
Thank you Sheila! xoxo
They are all worth adding to a collection. Lovely.
Yup – I got some really good stuff. woohoo!
You received a really lovely collection of postcards – they’re all so different from each other, but they look awesome grouped together 🙂
This was my first time participating in the postcard swap, and I’m already looking forward to next year. Seeing all the great postcards in the blog hop is as much fun as receiving beautiful postcards in the mail!
I was really excited to see them all together. Each unique, but a great collection.
It is so much fun seeing all the art that was liberated! You got a great set.
This has been a blast. I skipped 2013 and was really regretting it. Glad I came back this year.
So true! Saw your blog. Your work is really beautiful.
Great set including yours!
Thank you, Lui! That’s very kind.
What a lovely way to show off the postcards! Looks like you got a lovely collection of postcards this time around! Glad I got to participate this year and look forward to connecting with great artists next year too! 🙂
Such good fun. I hope to see you next year!
Beautiful cards! And, your blog is lovely.
