How 'bout a little Jane?
This is a stamp I carved for a Jane Austin swap not too long ago. To my surprise, she wrote under the pen name 'By a Lady'. I wanted the stamp, and subsequent LTCs, to look like an old-fashioned calling card.
Calling cards are interesting to me. There are folks that collect the old ones; check out these sites to see calling cards for the Gentlemen and some for the Ladies . I also found this interesting site talking about modern calling cards: Chic and Charming.
Interesting swap idea, to be sure...
ps. In thinking about calling cards, I realized that my Padawan and I use calling cards when we troop science fiction conventions. The cards feature some of our many Star Wars stamps on the front and on the reverse is information on how to contact us. People are quite impressed when we offer them one...very handy, indeed!
