Rydes With Eagles (Joyce) has given me permission to share a few of her Letterbox Trading Cards (LTC's). In particular her CMW Poem Series. Joyce not only creates unique and imaginative LTC's (some very detailed and intricate) but she also combines photography and poetry into her art. I feel that the combination of the three is very enriching in a multitude of ways. In some instances the poetry may be my favorite component. With some it could be the LTC that really captures my attention or it could even be a combination of all three. Joyce generously provided me with a CD of her poems recently and I am fortunate enough to have many of her LTC's too. What a gift indeed!
