A little birdie told me that you like to get mail. I do, too. The weather in Grand Rapids is perfect today! Its warm, sunny and feels like spring. After work, I took a long walk around my neighborhood and heard birds chirping. Yay, spring! The lake behind my building is buzzing with ducks, geese and swans. They are so pretty, but I keep my distance because I am definitely scared of them. I've heard stories about those swans...
This cheery little card was created by combining three of my favorite things: postcards, sewing, and recycling. I found an unopened pack of 6" x 4" photo paper at a thrift store along with the cutest little baby outfit. For some reason, one of the sleeves had been cut off, but I figured it could be used for something.
A scrap of yellow fabric is the base of this card with a word bubble and 'HI' stitched in navy blue embroidery thread. I cut the little bird cut from the baby outfit and sewed it to the base. 6" x 4" paper is the ideal size for a postcard: no cutting was required. Colored sharpies work well on photo paper to brighten up the back of the card along with a divider line stitched with the blue thread. When I send one of these postcards away, I will probably use in an envelope to keep it safe.
