Thankful Thursday

This hopped in a few days ago......
A wonderful frog ATC from teri with card and heart ATC!
Aren't they just wonderful!
We have started a new project: Global Greetings Mail Art
We are with 11 artists from all over the world sending each other mail art postcards .
This one is from Lisa. It hit the mailbox today.
Lovely Zen garden with owl and 3D pansies (or did they come of a little?) and butterfly. Wonderful symbols.

The back is so cute. Kitty cat is fishing and around it it says:

A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart I love it! ♥

Lolo's card of Frida!
Fabulously altered picture of Frida. We share the love for Frida.
I know a lot of you do too....

On the back it says:P The world is a better place because of you. What a beautiful phrase......

Lynn's card came yesterday.

Miss Hazelwood made of the inside of an envelop.

So creative!

Soul's card came together with Lisa's

I just love that saying by Ghandi: Be the chance you want to see in the world.

And she wrote some sweet words on the back!

♥ U!

I always try to be thankful for the most simple things in life.

Besides These wonderful pieces of art that hit the doormat I am thankful for friends who visit my blog and always leave these sweet comment.
