I received this postcard in the mail today from quaggy.

It's modpoged(?) onto a piece of wood and so awesome! The post office wouldn't mail it as-is for her though, can you believe that? I swear I used to send wooden postcards when I was a kid, but quaggy said that the postal workers told her it wouldn't go through the machine.

Anyway, I think it's fantastic, and I can't wait to try the recipe! Thanks, quaggy!

And I received my postcards today from dharma_rebel and quaggy:

The top one is from dharma_rebel. If you look real close, you can see that the green stem and leaves are embroidered - cool, huh? And awesome stitching I might add!

The bottom one is from quaggy. The San Jacinto Monument, in Houston TX, is on it. And did you know that it is the world's tallest monument tower and masonry tower?! Neither did I, until today! And there is a 220 ton star on the top of it. I may have to take a vacation to see it. Quaggy, I'll be stopping by to visit you....

Thank you for the cards for my growing collection!

I received from Sandra22! I love it. She explained that she works half way up the street and that the church they call the "bombed out church" due to World War 2 is on the street as well. She said the street looks exactly the same minus the horses. England sounds like it has some amazing history. Smiley

I would love to do personal swaps if anyones interested. If your interested please write me!

Oooh Bold St! I was walking up it not 2 hours ago.

The church at the end is officially called St Lukes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_St_Luke,_Liverpool) and at the moment an arts group has put a big cinema screen there and shows classic films for free in the evenings and on some weekends.

I love the embroidered card and the vintage card. And the wooden one is a great idea.

I have some vintage cards if anyone wants to do a private swap. I have Irish, French and Italian cards too.

I am especially looking for cards from just 8  states to finish off my state collection!

I love snail mail, it's so personal, and postcards are just delightful! I have a huge collection!

If anyone is going to organize another swap please let me know!!!

I recieved this from dharma_rebel.  It is fantastic she did a great job with the colors.  She has stitched it with yellow on all of the detail on the butterfly.   My kitchen is done in aqua and pale yellow 50's antiques.  I plan to frame it on pale yellow background and frame it.  It will have a home in my kitchen. What a great first swap for me.   

I made the wooden postcard recipe cards.  I purchased the wood @ Hobby Lobby in the hobby section.  It is perfect to cut 4 cards from. One long strip and make 3 cuts.  I then painted one side brown.  After it way dry I used paint on crackle medium let it tack up and then applied the off white paint.  It drys and forms the old weathered wood effect. Next I took a large recipe stamp  (also Hobby Lobby) and ink pad that can be used on wood and stamped the recipe with lines.  I hand painted the  flower border with leaves and used a sharpie to write the recipe.  After it dried I then spayed it with a gloss sealer.  Stained the reverse side addressed and attempted to mail. I ended up having to dress it in an envelope.  The wood is about 1/8 in thick.
