Christmas greetings!  I can't believe how long it has been since my last blog post.  Between dealing with some health issues and working long hours the days have just flown by.  I've done a little bit of crafting since then so I've got a few projects to share.  The first one is a postcard swap hosted by Art Papers Online.  I'll have another ready to share in a couple of days.

There are 60 crafters and artists in this swap and we all started with a packet of 10 handmade Thai postcards.  Each of us will send 9 cards off into the world this month to welcome in the new year with pretty mail.  The first card I made was the stamped American Eagle design.  I like the picture I came up with but I wanted something "different" for them so I switched over to napkin collage.  I used US Art Quest's Perfect Paper Adhesive (PPA) matte finish on all of them.  Some of the cards have fairy dust glitter on them but for some reason it doesn't show on the scans.

Since I only need 9 of the 10 for the swap one of these will be left out.  I haven't decided yet which one that will be.  So without further adieu, here are my cards for the swap!
I know which one is my favorite and I'd like to know which one is yours!  Drop me a line and let me know if you like them...and if you do, which one you like best. And you can check out everyone else's postcards on this Pinterest board:  http://www.pinterest.com/artpapersonline/art-postcard-swap/

Until next time...Happy Stamping!

  4. I love them all! My favorite is a toss between "je ne sais quoi" and "take time to smell the flowers".
