Postcards – Spoiler Alert for Lin

LIN, if you don’t want to see your postcard before it gets there, close this now!!

I joined two postcard swaps this month.  I have more than enough to do, but postcards are so much fun so I said yes.  Here they are.

The first one was organized by Brandy Lynn.  The theme is snowflakes.  (Can you tell?)  These are plastic sequin snowflakes on a blue background overlaid with tulle with silver flecks.  Even though I first glued, then sewed the snowflakes on, I felt a need to put stitching around them.  I thought that the swirly circles would give the effect of swirling snowflakes.  It looks more like that in person than it does in the photo.  I don’t know who I am sending this one to yet.

The second one is for a swap organized by Sheila.  The theme is Christmas Smile  I decided to play with my new technique. We had strategic planning meetings at work the last two days – a perfect time to do a bit of stitching.  Lots of channels emerged.  This card is going to Lin in France.

  1. Both are stunning, the stitching round the letters intrigues me, and swirly flakes, perfect for where you live. Jean.
