Another postcard. Used a page from a Paper Source catalog, markers for the red edge, and candy stickers.

This is for a swap I signed up for on Swap Bot. I used old cards, wrapping paper, and other bits to cover over existed postcards, creating a Xmas themed NEW postcard!
Here it is! It's actually not just the top, but the whole sandwich, that's why you can see little gold shiny things all over the top--those are the safety pins holding it together with the batting and the backing. So someday soon I need to learn to actually "quilt" my quilt. It's kind of devious, you think you're making a quilt, then the class ends and they go, "oh no, this is just the piecing class, 'quilting' is a whole other class," and set of tools for your sewing machine, etc. But I'm very pleased with how this turned out. I love my bright color choices. Several people in the class said it would be good for a children's room. NO, it's MINE.
