iHanna DIY Post Card Wrap Up.

Looks like my total this time for #diypostcardswap for May 2018 will only be 8/10 although I was lucky enough to receive a bonus from a special friend.  Hi Tammy :)  I was not on her list.

So here are the cards I received this time around.  I have done this swap twice a year for several years now.

#1 From Judy Hazlett, Townville PA

#2 From Debbie, California.

#3 from Annika  a delicious collage

#4 from Kelli, Nevada City, CA

#5 from Quinn in Pheonix Arizona

#6 from Rachel in Waco Texas

#7 from Sarah in Slovenia.  A peacock's tail.

#8 from Katie Burke.  Another lovely collage.

#Bonus for the lovely Tammy Ham.  We have been friends for a long time and she does wonderful work.  This set was assisted by her dear Mother.  Thank you both.

 And so that's a wrap from the 2018 iHanna Spring Swap.

iHanna Post Card Swap.

Twice a year this large international post card swap is hosted by Hanna The swap call for 10 hand made postcards to be made and ready to send when you receive your 10 addresses.   You sign up, pay a small admin fee, make your cards and wait for your addresses.  There is a date set for when you are required to finish your mail outs.

I have done this twice a year for a number of years now and I really enjoy receiving little pieces of art from around the globe.

Hanna has an Instagram page for displaying the cards under the hashtag #diypostcardswap but as I don't have an IG account I just post mine to my FB page with the hashtag.

So this round is done and dusted and I am just waiting to get my addresses, anytime after tomorrow and then wait expectantly for the beautiful artwork to arrive in my letterbox.

These are my cards for this round.  Some are duplicated.

I have been doing a weekly challenge called Scavenger Hunt.  It's lots of fun and a bit similar to The Dot to Dot that Joan Mannix posts each month.

Here a the pages I have done so far.

Looking forward to continuing through the year.
