Art2Mail

I have just finished a very enjoyable postcard swap with 25 great artisitic gals from all over the world. When I first committed to making these cards I was, at first, wondering how in heavens I could possibly make 25 cards - on time. I actually dropped out and then, a day later,decided that I had to give it try because I do want to begin collecting art 2 mail cards. I made these cards in so many variations of colors - I happily painted each one differently - but these are two that I have, so far held back for a couple of friends who I know like this color combination! I may have to get involved in another swap because this one has been so much fun !!

Don't stop Marie, your felines are precious. You are a very talented lady. Carry on!

I'd love to see these in person, Marie... as well as the 25 you received. I've thought of doing a swap like this, but have never thought I could actually make so many at one time. You were smart to make them all a little the same (production work goes fast), yet a little different (so it doesn't get so boring)! Cheers, Robin A.

These little guys are terrific! What a wonderfully creative use of fabric! I would love to be part of an art card swap in the future -- please keep me in mind!

sorry about the 'puter. Did you just paint/draw the card and stitch around the edge or is something actually sewed to something?
