"Take a Word" Challenge Sample: Mail



This subject of week's Take a Word Challenge will be "Mail," an appropriate theme for this time of year. I had the honor of being asked by Marie (Ozstuff) to create a sample piece for this challenge. Here's my digital collage, featuring a young lady who LOVES her mail (snail mail, not e-mail), and I know exactly how she feels.
