Blastoff

Blastoff

This is one of my favorite envelopes I've made. Not sure why, I think I just love the old-school space-style illustration. Here we have two of the other recent Zazzle photo stamps I've ordered: Soda guarding a Curb your Dog postcard, and Magic yawning on a porch. Had to throw in a Skylab space stamp to complete the theme.

starry air mail

Mmm... starry.

  1. this is my favorite envelope of yours! black and white just seem very postal to me; and the little air mail label completes the deliciousness of it all. :] i love the new cat stamps, they are so adorable as always. <3 <3 thank you for putting up my little tree doodle recently, that was really neat to see! :]

  4. I love it, too! Get that in your mailbox and start daydreaming about exploring space for twenty minutes or so... and THEN you get to sit down with a letter. Lots of happiness in that envelope.

  5. yes, this envelope is wonderful, love the contrast of the black and white - all the colorful stamps used just POP against the envelope!

    BTW: where did you find your envelope pattern? it doesn't look like the one I use from the "Good Mail Day" book...just wondering =-)

  8. Sue - good gravy - I drew NOTHING! I can be creative with stickers and stamps and decoration and such, but I am horrible at drawing, alas.

  9. I am relieved. I shall restore my glue stick to it's prestigious pedestal.

    I play with drawing, but it is awful. My daughter and I had a blast making envacordions (sp?). Thanks for that post!

    I'm enjoying your blog. Thanks!
    Cheers!
