Winner of First ICCA Cachet Contest
The newly formed International Cover Collectors Association - ICCA held a first ever "On-Line" Cachet Contest this past month. The cachets were to be made for the 2016 Lunar Year of the "Fire" Monkey. My entry was voted to a tie with another very fine cachet design entry and won in the "run-off" voting!
Wanting a "Fun" design I of course thought of the "Evil Monkey" theme... with a twist!
These guys did such a poor job at NOT seeing, hearing, and speaking that they were "FIRED"!
