Postcard Swap

I signed up to take part in a postcard swap, organized by Hanna Andersson.  You can read more about it here.  Basically, you make 5 postcards, send them out to the names Hanna provides - they are to be in the mail by next Monday, November 26th - and receive 5 postcards from others who have done the same.  Today's the last day to sign up, if you interested (and who wouldn't be?!). 

My friends Laurie and Kym are signed up too (that's how I heard about the swap) and we're going to make a few extra cards to send to each other as well (assuming we don't get each other's names as part of the swap, that is!).

Of course, I can't reveal the finished product just yet, don't want to spoil the surprise for those who will be receiving them, but here's a little peek at the cards I'm making:

(I'm using a template Hanna provided on her blog, which I printed out on cardstock. Thanks for that, Hanna!)

I'll be sure to share pictures of the cards I receive when I get them.  I'm looking forward to finding these pieces of handmade art in my mailbox in the next week or two!
