No need to apologise!

Masami apologises for being late in sending these three delightful cards. Some things are worth waiting for!
A catband Harmonica player!

Some yummy tuna sushi...Oishiii!, and a coffee filter flower painting.
Thank you Masami san.

Flowers for memories.

A lovely wild poppy card from Valerie. These poppies hold a special place in the hearts of Australians. We wear them in remembrance of the soldiers killed in all of the wars. The custom dates from the armistice of World War 1 because many of our soldiers perished in Flanders where these poppies grow wild in the field.
A beautiful card and very special.
Thanak you Valerie.

Thank you Shungo my friend.

A beautiful card of cherry blossoms from Shungo. Shungo was among the earliest friends I exchanged cards with back in about 2011 and he never disappoints.
Thank you Shungo.

A dream vacation.

I confided to Debbie that it had been my dream this year to visit Japan but circumstances  ruled otherwise. She sweet creature has given me a 'virtual' trip via her delightful map of Hokkaido. Not as good as the real thing especially with a chance to visit with her, but an exercise in imaginary flight...thank you for the kind thought Debbie.

Don't you love the seal?

Literature And coffee!

Two etegami from the lovely Shay in Hawaii. Wise words indeed from a lady who is a talented artist and it seems, a thoroughly nice human being.
The idea of using these havve filtered through the etegami community!

Thank you Shay.

See that "S" car GO!

A very bad pun to introduce the charming snail etegami from my friend Valerie in France. (escargot=snail in French).
Lovely words also on the back of the card done on a coffee filter. I should try these filters, they give a similar bleeding effect (Nijimi) as the traditional etegami cards.

Merci Valerie.
