A slew of swap-bottery this time!
The top two are for an “upcycled cardboard trade,” in which we were to rescue cardboard from the recycling by turning it into a postcard. The fish postcard, one of a set I made some time ago (down to a single card after this went out), goes to someone in Clyde, Ohio, who says she likes “under the sea” themes. The cloud & rain, from a toy package, went off to Bel Air, Maryland.
The California postcard is the only non-swap-bot card this time around, and it goes out via the Postcrossing Forum Hong Kong to the World Tag, to a recipient who expressed an interest in map cards.
I HATE that postcard at bottom left! Artless, uninspired, uncredited–and of course it was part of the disappointassortment. I papered over many of this mistakenly-purchased hell-set of cards with stamp collages, but somehow, this card escaped that treatment. It’s a good thing, because now it goes to go off to Warsaw, Poland in a swap-bot “I HATE this card” trade!
That “Star Wars Episode I”-looking lady came to me some time ago from Russia, and now it heads off to someone else, thanks to a “recycled postcard” trade, in which we were to slap a new back on and old card, and send it off. As you will see below, I cut off a portion of the new backing, so that the recipient (who lives in Zweeloo, Netherlands) will get to enjoy the original postage stamp.
Finally, the “Genius” card went off to Plainfield, Illinois, as a part of a “free card” trade. I picked this up at a cool old single-screen cinema near where I work. Just another reason to give them my business!
A cavalcade of backsides:
