Not long ago I participated in a group postcard swap on the 3CS forum. The theme for this swap was 'On Broadway'. It is all over now, and we have all received our swap cards, so I thought I would share the ones I received as well as those I made.
These are the four postcards that I received. Each one of us seemed to associate musicals with the theme. I am so pleased to have taken part in this. It's good to stretch oneself at times, as I struggle interpreting a theme. But, I have to say that I've so enjoyed receiving such pretty 'mailart'.
I took this photo before I sent off my efforts. I can't help but be amused at the similarities in thought processes, as well as the fact that some of us even broke the background in the same way. These are the things I find interesting about projects such as this. I have to apologize for the incorrect spelling on one of my cards - oh dear, I won't print out things again before I double check!!! I did make an extra one, and sent off to a lady who unfortunately had taken ill and couldn't participate. I do hope she is now feeling much better.
Whilst on the subject of fabric postcards, I would love to share this one with everyone. I was fortunate enough to be chosen as the winner of this lovely card made by Kathy Shaker. It arrived last week. It is just lovely in 'real life', so many little bits going together to make this sweet card. Kathy is a friend I've made via the StitchinFingers site.

Thank you Kathy!!
