head pecker

cathy sent this fun envelope with the bird pecking on mark twain's head. so instead of a woodppecker it is a headpecker.

she used colored pencil.
nice colors
and this would look pretty with the fern stamps too.

could have done without the double cancel.

i'm thinking it will be fun to find other combinations of stamps that look nice together but also involve some kind of interaction between the subject matter.

i have been hording the coffee pot stamps. now i need a twain stamp, so i can have coffee pouring over his head
and the spill will spell out the name or zip code or just one letter....

  1. Interesting that it received a double cancel, considering it looks like a square envelope, which is supposedly non-machinable....

    Do other countries impose a fee for odd-shaped or addressed mail? I don't think the UK does, they care more about weight.
