Postcards Sent/Received

I made these 2 postcards with fabric paper. Both have machine and hand stitching. They were posted yesteday - one to Australia and one to the U.S.A.


I also received 2 beautiful postcards!! The first one is from Dy. I admired her stitched bicycle on FlickR as I love to cycle, and asked her if she would like to do a swap. So, aren't I the lucky one - this is the end result. Me riding my bike in the forest with the wind blowing in my hair. I love it Dy!!! Thankyou.

The next is a birthday postcard from Helen of FAF group - a month early - but heck I don't care, especially when the card is so lovely. The background is from fabric paper (I think)with lots of things to look at, and added charms. It was a wonderful birthday surprise! Thanks Helen.

Your postcards are beautiful, and I like the bicycle card as well. The "fading memories" is so nostalgic....and did I miss your birthday? When was it??

(Did JD send you anything? If he did I'll be terribly jealous!!)

Your work, as always, is truly wonderful. It is rich in color and full of depth. Your postcard collection must be pretty amazing!

They are gorgeous Dianne, I like the second one the most. I was also wondering to send you a postcard now (I didn't forget you're birthday) because next Thursday whe're on holiday and when I send it afterwards you probably get it to late....the post sometimes takes lots of time!!! Now it doesn't seem strange anymore :-)
