Merve from Ankara, Turkey always has the best cards and messages for me! 🙂 I adore this New York card, and the airmail themed Eskişehir, Turkey card. The heart shaped stamp is also super amazing. 🙂

I sent Merve these cards last November:

Merhaba from my Turkish penpal!

Merve sent me these 2 beautiful cards today! I love the colors on both so much. She sent me a packet of instant Turkish coffee, and told me to take a picture so she could read the grounds. AND she added these wonderful Olympics stamps! Yay!

So today I sent her another card I made from a Band-Aid box. 🙂 I added each of the 3 Candyland Band-Aids, a picture of the coffee grounds and a postcard from the Virginia Aquarium since she likes fish.

I’ve recently become interested in Maxicards. Maxicards are postcards that have a similar card and stamp with a postmark (especially a pictorial mark) that relates to the topic. The card then has “maximum” concordance. I sent these two cards out today, and although they aren’t true Maxicards, I had fun putting them together.
