A fabulous message from Bev!

Second Prize: Dotty

Bev has kindly allowed me to quote from her letter about 'Dotty'.

‘To say I am thrilled is an absolute understatement - she is adorable……. I have her on now and probably will wear her very often.'

Thank you Bev. I have a real soft spot for 'Dotty' too - Helen created a doll of a bead!

A beautiful message from Jean

Third Prize

I've received this beautiful letter from Jean. Everytime I read it, I weep sweet tears. Thank you Jean!

Dear Jennifer:

I have received my stunning, stunning purple and swirled earrings from The Postcardian Competition! The Competition! That great thing you did which helped us all, and made us aware of The Ovarian Cancer Action Organization ( The softly etched and perfectly made beads by Laura Sparling are framed by you in sterling silver, as only you can frame them. They are beautiful! I am so lucky!
You create with a mindful heart and soul which makes sense of everything you set your hands to. If I could own all your pieces, I would have a giant treasure chest of glorious dreams, made into reality, by you!

The other pieces which I have from you are equally as fantastic and exquisitely fashioned. I am amazed every time I gaze at your work as it takes me on a journey of delight! There is always something new to see! How do you DO that? I think it is because your creativity truly does know no bounds. I am in awe of your wonderful way with beads, wire, sterling, other elements you choose to use...I am in awe of YOU!

In gratitude,


Put a smile on your face - more from Aardvark!

Thank you Cathy!

Look what came through the letter box today!

Thank you for sending these to me.

Because my brood & their father have been ill with some yucky stomach virus, I haven't organised myself sufficiently to send off the cheques to Ovarian Cancer Action. So the good news is that I can add more cash to my donation!

Cathy of Aardvark Art

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy - I LOVE THIS GUY!!

Thank you Cathy. You always make me smile. Aardvark Art is Happy Art :-)

Heather Hurst HH1

Heather, thank you so much for this card. What a shame that the mail was delayed!

Roland Sparling: RS2

Roland, how kind of you to send me this card - thank you! I hope you had a lovely time on the cruise.

'Beach' will shortly be airborne on its way to Elizabeth King.

The 'Dotty' pendant is going to zoom across England to Beverley Abbott

The purple earrings are going to fly to Jean Yates.

I wish I could send you all something - will my love & a hug do?

Emails have been sent to the winners

The competition has ended and the draw is done. I've sent emails to the winners & as soon as I hear back from them, I will let you know their names & in the cases of the second & third prize winners, what pieces they have chosen.

I will never be able to adequately thank you all for your magnificent postcards and your help & support. I am grateful & will remain so forever.
