Today’s batch all comes to us from Italy. Ok, mostly Italy since technically Sardinia is an autonomous region of it.

My favorite of the batch is this one from I1TC:

I just love the graphic nature or it. As time goes by the more I appreciate the look of abstraction.

The more I look at the card the more I like the creative ones. I love the little W8DFL being carried by the bird. Anyone know what bird that might be?

It takes more time to fill out those cards since there’s something on both sides.

Even if you don’t have filled out stuff on both sides I think whatever card I do I’ll make double-sided. It doesn’t cost much more, and I think people will like them more.

Another new thing this week (and I’ll need to spend some time back-filling this as well) is I’m trying to keep track of the city of origin of the cards. I figure I’ll put together a big clickable Google map of all of the cards. Click on a pin and get the card! Fun!
