This dam is one of the largest hydroelectrical facilities in North America. As the Canadian postcrosser points out, she built the fifth unit. Amazing!

The Dutch postcrosser burned the edges all around, and created a hole on the right. Then she punched holes and sewed with yarn. This card arrived intact with stamp.
this German postcrosser added some love stickers to an otherwise bland card. Love the effect!
This gorgeous oversized card is from Tanya - a birthday card! She always creates the most amazing card with paper and medium. She's been doing a number of pieces on Grimm's tales. This one can be some sort of myth from the Roman days. Always fun to open the envelope and see the gorgeous work inside.
The fantasy castle card is from a postcrosser in Minsk and the dragon card is from my husband, a birthday card. We're both dragon year birthdays - his is coming up in July. I really like these two cards juxtaposed. There needs to be a story that goes with them...

This fine drawing card with tiny stickers is from Taiwan. The handwriting of this postcrosser is as delicate as the drawing.
This Latvian card ranks among my all-time favorite altered card. The drawing ink poured over this card left a molasses-like gooey look. The card isn't sticky at all, however. Dark and fabulous!
This altered John Lennon card was created by the son of a British postcrosser. I used to love to play with lettering like this when I was in high school!!!
This cheery smiley card is from the Netherlands. The postcrosser adhered shiny stickers all around and painted the card a hot pink.
This colorful card is from Australia and advertizes humor.
I love this mosquito card from Finland. She used the empty frames remaining from a sheet of stamps to create the screen. Brought back memories of hiking in Sweden in the summer. I foolishly wore black leggings, which attracted all the mosquitos to my legs.
I love the irreverence of this mustachioed Buddha card from Japan.

This Russian postcrosser collaged a card, then put tape on top to preserve the pieces. It's quite a stunning piece. She lives in the Siberian city of Tyumen and enjoys going to the twice-year "Irregular Movie Festival." Why irregular? It's a festival of arthouse movies with subtitles (not dubbed) and viewers are denied the usual popcorn and beer. LOL. All the movies in the States are irregular too - beer is never on the menu.
I love this collage card from an Indonesian postcrosser. This postcrosser writes that this card is the biggest effort in making a post card so far. In looking at her profile, I learned that she is a feminist and dreams of becoming a pro-diver. The text translates into "something good shouldn't be expensive."
