Four Down, Six To Go ...

Here's a sneak preview of my postcards for the 2011 Postcards Swap. I finished four within the last 24 hours so should have no problems finishing the remaining six until next Wednesday.

For a few days I played around with my fabric stash and scraps, browsed the web for inspiration, emptied out my large basket of ribbons, purchased some stick-on gems .... until I finally found the right combinations.





I also, for the first time, started sewing on paper and gave the postcards a decorative stitch on the reverse.





I'm quite pleased with the result so far... I'd love to keep them myself I think! I hope the person who receives them will be just as pleased.

How adorable! And what a good idea to use the decorative stitches on the backs.

Jepp, those decorative stitches gives it that little something extra.
