Australia Post releases at least one new postage stamp design each year featuring Queen Elizabeth II, usually in celebration of her "birthday" public holiday, which in Australia falls in June.
This year Lizzie is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee - that's a whopping 60 years as sovereign for 16 countries, including Australia.
I think the grey tones of the stamps look great on these handmade pink envelopes.
Written correspondence has been a hobby of mine for a long time, & Monday Mail Out is a weekly feature whereby I can share my love for the lost art of letter writing. I hope my experiences will encourage others to send out letters on Monday too, and have them rediscover the joy of sending and receiving mail. If you have a blog, feel free to join in.
