New Personal Traveler Carved by FloridaFour
I try not to covet other Letterbox carvers hand carved stamps but on occasion a stamp just captures my eye and it is love at first sight. I know so many talented carvers that are generous with their talent, knowledge and skills. Andrea of FloridaFour is one of those. She was a contributor of Letterbox Trading Cards (LTC's) in a recent tracker exchange called Bloodless Halloween. We each created 10 LTC's and then sent them to Shark Boy and Lava Girl. They sorted and mailed back a set of LTC's to each contributor. In return for our art we receive back 9 cards by other artist. If you have the time it is a wonderful way to stay inspired and share tips, tricks and ideas with other Letterboxers.
FloridaFour and I exchanged a few e-mail about how much I loved her crow carving. She was not sure about planting it with such a busy schedule. I mentioned that I was eyeballing it for a Personal Traveler and then next thing I know it's Christmas in my mailbox. Not only did she send me the stamp but she included a handmade card (another insanely gorgeous carving on the cover) but two additional LTC's. One of a Crow that was for a Steampunk Art LTC and the other a self portrait. All I can say is she is generous and amazing!
The next time my Letterboxing friends see me be sure to ask to stamp my new Personal Traveler. I don't mess around with silly clues and puzzles. Just ask and you shall receive!
