Postcard # 13

I finished postcard # 13 this afternoon so thought I'd share a picture...


There have been a couple of queries about what I plan to do with these pieces so here's the scoop - they will be stiffened with some heavy interfacing and backed with fabric that has been rubber stamped with the words 'Post Card'.  Once done, they will be sent through the mail (inside an envelope for protection) as little gifts.  Hope that clarifies my plans!

Today your quote is from the infamous anonymous.... "A careless word may kindle strife.  A cruel word may wreck a life.  A timely word may level stress.  But a loving word may heal and bless"

I think fabric postcards are in my future. I bought plastic sleeves. Now I'll search out a postcard rubber stamp and hope I kept a stamp pad when I gave my stamping things away. I really admire the post cards you have been sharing with us. I'm sure anyone that receives one will be thrilled.

I like the quote today. A few days ago I was upset when a family member posted insults about another family member on Face Book. I posted in my status something about hurtful insults and how that sort of thing should not be posted for the world to see. I had quite a few reprimands in the comments saying that sometimes it's the only way people can say what they want to. Guess all those commenters either missed the point or are part of the problem. I'm back to shunning Face Book.
xx, Carol

Fun project.

Love the quote of the day and what a clever idea with the postcards. One of the ladies in a little facebook group I'm in ( we meet once every 2 months ) belongs to a postcard group - they make and send them to lots of people all over the world. She has a little book where she keeps the ones sent to her and a coloured copy of the one she sent. It is a lovely record.

Actually they are a very good idea for when you want to try out an idea or just do a small bit of stitching:)
