Postcard Exchange Blog Hop

Elm Street Quilts offered to host a postcard exchange and I signed up to exchange with someone.

Here is a photo of the postcard that I made, and sent, for the exchange:

Postcard Exchange 2018

I wrote about the postcard exchange, my recipient’s word for inspiration (plunge), and my fabric postcard which was mailed to Texas.  You can find that post here.

My word for my postcard exchange partner was ‘garden’.  It isn’t very original, and definitely wide open to interpretation.

When I received my postcard, I was thrilled.  I am so ready for color and this postcard provides color and cheer!

Thank you so much to Christina from Iowa!  I couldn’t be happier and this card is now on display in my happy place…the sewing studio!

  7. I just love your postcard. I’m not sure I’d personally be brave to dive off a real cliff but I’d like to stand there and look at the view! Thanks for being part of the postcard swap and hop!

    • Ha, ha! I’m with you, Patty…not brave enough to take a dive like that! But I do wish I was more willing to take certain risks in life, and not just enjoy the view. 🙂

      Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the swap and hop. I had fun, and I was inspired by the many creative postcards!
