A Recent Mail Art Finish - Just in Time for the 4th!

Happy 4th of July!  The Mail Art piece I sent out recently was a patriotic piece for the 4th of July and has now been received so I can show you what I stitched on it.

The front of the "envelope" shows some fire crackers from the Sue Hillis It's Summer chart.  The alphabet is from a freebie by Victoria Sampler.   The address is her business address, so don't worry that I didn't block it out. 
The back shows a birdhouse that is from the Sue Hillis Life and Liberty chart.  The same alphabet was used on the return address.
The inside was lined with fabric that had firecrackers on it, and I enclosed a postcard of Chicago. 
To say the Sue loved it is an understatement!  And she reported that it arrived in perfect condition.

I have always wondered about mail art but never took the time to research it. Thanks for the information. And, by the way, that particular piece of mail art was really sweet.

LOVE my mail art, AND the post office fell right into the color scheme and cancelled the stamps in red. It arrived in perfect condition and it's sitting on an easel on my desk...did I mention I LOVE it??? Thanks so much! Sue
