graceful envelope no. 4
apologies for the icky italics (again). as i recall, this one was accepted in the graceful envelope contest. this scan is from the practice envelope i did. it was back in the day before color copiers and scanners (at home) and i sometimes did duplicates to have a copy for my own reference. i remember taking this one to the p.o. and asking for a hand cancel. the grumpy guy at the counter shoved it back at me and said, "there is no address." i smirked and replied that there was an address if he looked closely. when he figured it out, he was a little flustered. probably embarrassed to be looking so closely at body parts. oh well. it wasn't my idea to come out with that stamp. believe me, i had a couple ideas for the breast cancer stamp that i left on the drawing board because i thought they were a little too *silly* or disrespectful.
