Copy Cat Postal Dog

I love it when I am just looking around online (googled zentangle envelope photos) and find a vein of fun blogs of folks who are into creating interesting mail art.  I saw this dog on one and just had to copy it :).  I made one for my son's letter and this one for my friend.  Forgive the mucking around in his mouth but I blurred out her last name and totally took off her address which is under the dog's chin.  What a fun drawing!

I may add "Woof" or something yet to the corner.  Or "Grrrrr" LOL.

I also found a post about a book called "Walking with the Mailman", written by a letter carrier.  Now I too work for USPS but I am not a city carrier, I am a rural carrier.  I downloaded the book onto my Kindle (.99 cents!) and have been laughing my way through the first three chapters!  I may not drive an LLV (mail truck) or have a walking route but I certainly can relate to some of the human and canine aspects of the stories!!  So the dog above also has some merit...but he won't bite any mailmen, I promise!

Also hello to the new visitors!  I hope to keep up on this blog now that I got myself a new laptop.  Say "hi" and I'll stop by and say "hi" back!

Note card, Grandma's flowers.

Art journal, in memory of a favorite pen.  

Unfortunately this pen ran out of ink today.  It has been with me for a couple of months, wrote numerous letters that included lots of naughty words, hopes, dreams, tears and frustration.  I love this pen so much I even searched to see if refills can be found.  Of course not!  Why make such a fine well built pen if it cannot be refilled?  I'd write the company but *my pen is dead!*

Ruby the Red Hat possum.  This is the envelope I created to go with yesterday's opossum card.  The recipient's address goes in the boxed frame.

Wildflowers and Silliness

Two cards I made this afternoon.  The Greenheaded Coneflowers are blooming on the side of the road and I had to try and draw them.  The other is just a silly card for my friend/penpal.
