Other Postcard wishes/preferences
* ABSOLUTE FAVORITE TO RECEIVE -HANDMADE!!! –Show me your talent! I love beautiful, creative, handmade cards -painted, with markers, sketches, amazing collage, altered art.. let your creativity flow! These are better sent in an envelope. Decorated envelopes are quite welcome.
* Art cards are preferred to tourist views or town views. Prefer local art over well known artists
* Aerial view of state/country capitol building
* I prefer a single card, not folded - image on one side, message and stamps on back.
* 4 x 6 or 10 cm x 15 cm is preferred as large cards are almost impossible for me to store.

* Cards from my favorites or similar cards
