Pass the Book.....and some mail art

I was lucky enough to receive this book through Sian's 'Pass the Book'........and I've loved it.....I've read and re-read it.......and am so sad to see it go......that I'm going to get my own copy.
It's full of the most amazing and inspiring mail art........and I loved the idea of mail art so much....I mean....how lovely is it to get 'happy mail' instead of 'junk mail' or 'bill mail'......that I joined Ginger's mail art exchange group.
 Now......I never forget to photograph my cards and scrap pages.......but somehow keep forgetting to photograph my mail art envelopes........but did manage to have my thinking head on for these two.

 And another two beauties that I've received from Cheri and Rinda.....I'm still thinking about how I'm going to display the mail art.

 I have remembered to take pictures of some of the items I popped inside the envelopes......you can see some of those tomorrow. And you will, I'm sure, enjoy seeing this beautiful little canvas that 'happy mailed' into my letter box from Mel on Saturday......I love it......thank you,Mel.
If you'd like a chance to have a turn with the wonderful 'Good Mail Day'.......just leave a comment.....and if you're not sure how 'pass the book' works.......have a look here. I'll draw a 'winner' on Friday June 24th.
edited......whoops....sorry....I meant July 1st!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just want to say amazing, amazing work. Please don't put me in for the running for this book, although it's lovely and I may try and get it from the library, life is a bit manic for me at the moment to take part.

Hi Jacky...
I really enjoyed looking at the lovely decorated envelopes last time and was inspired to decorate one for kathyK....
I saw on my chart that it's your birthday tomorrow but I don't think I will be able to get to the P.O today ...it is absolutely bucketing it down and thunder galore...
Hope the weather is better for you in the morning....Happy Birthday whatever the weather...x
