Here are a few I just made for our guild exchange. The theme was Kansas. On the back, I wrote that famous quote uttered by Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz:
"There's no place like home, there's no place like home....."
My friend Kathe Dougherty shared a great idea for these. She stitched a card directly onto cardstock. I tried it and liked it. I used old Christmas cards. The colorful designs on those showed through cotton so I used decorator fabric samples to cover them. The heavier fabric worked well and made them even sturdier. Then I appliqued the little houses on them.
Kathe just returned from a retreat where she carried on the "no scrap too small" theme, making these postcards from everyone's scraps. Aren't they great?
