RAM Postcards

I don't know if I fully explained Random Acts of Mail...It became a spin off of April's National Letter Writing Month group--we send pretty mail to someone who needs special cheering up due to health issues, stressful work or home situations, what have you. A bunch of arty, letter-happy people send cards and notes to our 'nominees' and fill their mailboxes with an overload of cheery, pretty mail love to hopefully lift their spirits in at least a small way. We are six weeks in and have sent happy mail to twelve deserving recipients, two each week, and it's been a lot of fun being a part of such a great group!

So yesterday I played with my new Mother's Day Aquamarkers giftie (yay!) and created a couple more postcards for our RAM project:

The flowers were done with Aquamarkers (ooo, blendy heaven!) and the little heart houses (ala Stephanie Ackerman) were done with Derwent watercolor pencils. Love my toys!

Not sure what today holds...Bugga has a birthday party this afternoon and if the rain holds off Hubster and I are hoping to get some yard work done. Mmm,*grumble, grumble, grrrr*. And still no real plans for Mothers Day other than he's off to Florida for the week for work. At least it'll be an easy week of dinners--macaroni for McBugster and veggie burgers for moi...or some similar rendition thereof...hahaha!

Happy Weekend! Happy Mother's Day!
