carol red EKG + ivory envelope

this looks like a loopy EKG or something. and the postmark is adorable and notice the extra lines that run across the stamps - i wonder how they were made - and by whom.

maybe we have kindred spirits at the p.o. who like to add-and-pass.

add-and-pass is something that is done in the world of rubber stampers. they have a list of participants. one person starts something, then mails it to the next one, who adds something and passes it to the next person on the list and so on.

carol sent some ivory envelopes and said she had no idea why she even had them as she only uses white. i think some of the stamps look really nice on ivory. this one, with the white border would look fine on white. as i recall, there was one stamp that looked really bad on white and only looked good on ivory. so...lesson for today... don't judge a color by its color.

i will try to remember and post a sample of the stamp that needs to be on an ivory envelope. maybe there is more than one.

and yes, that bunch of growing stuff on the L is hiding the fact that i made an r after the o, because i was talking. i have a small group that meets once a week to prepare items for the blog and i am learning that i reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally can't talk and write at the same time. but i sure enjoy fixing mistakes.
