The theme was "CREATE" and the only rule was that it had to contain some stitching!
I cracked open the still-sealed-after-2-years box of my sewing machine and tentatively got to work!
This is my postcard ....it was fun!
I drew a mason jar and used cellophane to make the "glass" popping some lovely buttons inside.
I added lace, Jute twine, brads, layers of different pretty papers, washi tapes etc and of course plenty of stitching!
We were supposed to include something innovative with paper and although not unique - stitching on paper is a first for me.
I even decorated the envelope with washi tapes (which you can see poking out from under the postcard below)!
My swap partner is called Alisa and she lives in Melbourne, I hope she likes my card!
I'm looking forward to receiving my own little piece of Happy-Snail-Mail from Alisa over the next few days!
I'll be sure to show you.
