Valentine’s Day Postcard Swap

Posted in Fun Stuff, Main at 11:44 pm by carrie

This really fun idea is brought to you by Tyn of Pookieville :) Over 100 people participated (I think!). Everyone sent out 10 postcards… in theory they were supposed to arrive at their destinations in time for Valentine’s day… but I have only received 5 and my 10 were sent out on the 12th (oops). So, it seems that lots of these cards will be trickling in over the next week or so ;)

I have scans of the 10 cards I made. When I get closer to getting the 10 from the other artists, I’ll post them right here :)

I opted to do each card differently… most of these characters should look familiar if you follow my blog ;)

Each card was hand drawn with chalk pastels and colored pencil and had glass glitter and/or swarovski glitter accents and a few had tinsel fringe borders :) I enjoyed doing these… I’m amazed at all the talented artists that participated in the swap, a few have posted their postcards on flickr, check it out and enjoy!

I’m thinking of doing a giveaway in the next few weeks so please check back :) I have to decide what to give out (St. Patty’s or Easter or??) and some of the logistics ;)

The week has officially caught up with me… time for a bubble bath followed by some scrubs (my new obsession) and bed ;) Goodnight everyone!!!

    They are all so cute, I don’t know which is my favorite . . . the cupcakes (which are chocolate I’m assuming) or the dog or the cats! That squirrel (or is it a chipmunk) is pretty darn cute too. I thought of a companion piece for the mouse card . . . a cat card that says ” I Heart Mice”. :-)
