My larger projects are all in the gathering the fabrics and supplies stages or just plain taking too long, so I've been in the postcard production mode. Ideas for them are coming to mind faster than I can create them. But I love that cause I hate it when I run out of postcard ideas.
First off, where did the cards go from my last post?
This Scrappy Swirl was mailed to my dear friend Carol, (mamacjt) as another thank you for sharing this fat eighth collection with me. She said she wasn't tired of receiving my postcards. :-)
...and she loves button embellies!
The Bluebirds have also flown the coop.
Bluebird Postale will be winging his way to Pamela Nees of Stitches In My Lap
Bluebird in the Garden will be winging his way to Caroll, West Michigan Quilter
Now, of course, Jacque (aka Snoodles) of Lily Pad Quilting has been playing along with my postcard giveaway, but I knew I was going to have to have a particular card design for her. So I made Froggie.
Are you familiar with her little green mischievous assistant, Padsworth?
I sometimes make a card that I just can't send away. So it looks like this Red Daisy card is for me.
Another style of art that I absolutely love and am quite fascinated with is Steampunk. I'm trying to figure out ways to add a bit a steampunk to my postcards. This is my first step start. I went out into Man's workshop to scrounge around for the flower center. The best I could surface with was this washer. But, it's a start! I've been to the craft store jewelry departments since and now have a supply of flower centers.
I have a couple of cards waiting to be mailed for private swaps, so can't show those yet.
As it turns out, I did not mail out this Scrappy Swirl after all.
So, if you'd like it to come to you, let me know!
Wishing us all a good mail day!
