My First MailArt Image – Self Portrait

The theme is "Time and Being Human" .....my interpretation is "My Time Being Human" so you get snapshots of my life in the postcards.  I will use this challenge to stretch myself again and explore what I can do.  I will also share a little of what makes me ....me.
