Post Card Swap

Some of the backs I am playing post office with!

Thread,  fabric and  hand made paper

Stitched on fabric and paper then glued to mat board. Then it was backed with a copy
of an old post card with a mocked up little stamp!

Having lots of fun, can't wait to receive the hand made
surprises in the mail!
Thanks for Peeking, Karen

These are for a post card swap hosted by i Hanna
It is now closed but you can go there and see other cards.
Also take a look at her blog with many tutorials and how to's!
Thanks Hanna for all the work!

Your cards are beautiful! I just linked here from Jane Cabrera's blog. I love the final photo of the handstitched lady. Seeing all these cards is making me want one of every single person participating (I know that's a bit greedy but they're all so lovely!). Am so glad to be taking part too.
Lovely blog too :)
