InCoWriMo Day 11 – Valentine’s Cards (Part 3)

This cutie is my dog, Bessie. I recently officially adopted her, and I’m super happy. Anyways, on to the mail…

Bessie and I are sending a Valentine to my cousin and her cat. I expect that my cousin will get a laugh out of it, while the cat will be indifferent. Cats…

(Apologies if anyone’s been getting a ton of emails from my blog! I fell behind on my mail and finally caught up! Maybe I can stay caught up for the rest of the month. What do we think the chances are of that happening?)


InCoWriMo Day 8 – Pen Pal

The space in the title is intentional, this letter is heading to a friend who I made at the Arkansas Pen Club, back when I lived in, well, Arkansas. Now I’m a thousand miles away, but we have been keeping in touch via social media, and now via snail mail!

Her letter was the first to arrive after the start of InCoWriMo, and so per the “rules”, I’m replying. Feels good.

InCoWriMo Day 7 – Love, Me

My Aunt & Uncle also sent me a Valentine, so they’re also getting a cute heart shaped thank you card in return. I don’t have a ton of opportunities to use these cards, but I love them, so I’m happy to send them out!

Of course I can’t be totally normal and loving in a card to them. My sister got me these stickers of my face for Christmas, so I’m adding one to this card so they don’t miss me too much… I’m an adult, really. 😂

InCoWriMo Day 6 – Cold Weather, Warm Heart

My grandparents are in their eighties, and they send me cute, glitter covered cards for every birthday and holiday, so I was tickled to see a glitter covered Valentine’s day card from them. I don’t really have any Valentine’s cards that are grandparent appropriate, so this heart shaped thank you card will have to do.

Even if you’re not participating in InCoWriMo this year, I highly recommend sending a Valentine to someone you love. It’s guaranteed to make them smile.

InCoWriMo Day 5 – Bicycle

I couldn’t resist picking this bicycle card when writing to a Dutch acquaintance of mine. She lives in the US now, but I thought it’d be fun.

Also, I’ve really been digging shimmer inks lately, if that isn’t obvious. This is J Herbin Amethyste d’Oural in my broad Lamy Safari. Shimmer inks don’t play nice in most of my pens, but it’s working well in this one so far. I love it.

What inks surprised you?
