Goblins, Ghoulies and Ghosties..



It is another glorious day here in the Northwest..Sunny, a little breezy and cool! Definitely starting to think about Halloween.. I am in a Halloween themed postcard swap and I needed to make a postcard that would go through the mail.. Well, I do hope this one will! I secured everything REALLY well! I had some leftover osnaburg fabric (a little like linen) and decided to print my image onto it.. Also used a cross stitch font and printed the saying.. for some reason the photo looks like the fabric is wrinkled and dirty and it really isnt!! I added a smidgeon of rick rack and stitched it all around.. soo.. do ya think the mail people will take this? I hope so..
The second card I made I also printed the image and sentiment onto the fabric.. sewed that onto a piece of felt to make it "cushy"! added some mini rick rack and some vintage buttons..It too will be going out in the mail tomorrow..

I sure would be scared to send such a lovely piece through the mail. So pretty to get it mess up but it looks like you have it secured. Now didn't I make you feel better about mailing this. :)
