I have joined a postcard swap on a yahoo group and the theme is leaves for this month , I already showed you my flower pounded leaf postcard in an earlier post and since then I have made two more postcards . Some people make three cards the same but I like to make different cards , I am not one to repeat much of anything when it comes to sewing so first I will show you a group picture of the three cards then the last two I have done in a close up . These were reallllly fun to do since I love the fall and I love trees .

Ok here is the next one I made , you were to use real leaves so I took leaves and traced around them to make a template for the paper side of the fusible Heat n'Bond lite .
Now for the final card , more leaves

As you can see I did a little free motion stitching to form the veins on the leaves , some of which leaves a little to be desired but it was still fun to do .
 The leaves have not yet started to turn here but there is a definite change in the weather , much cooler nights and lovely days with seasonable temperatures , I love the fall , it truly is my favorite season . Enjoy your day and thanks for the visit.
hugs Sheila


  1. Great job! My favorite it #3 with the orange background.

  2. Your postcards are just gorgeous and you tempt me to join BUT I have promised myself to be brave and say NO!!!

  3. Well, clever lady... the leaf postcards are just outstanding. I have been wanting to do some leaf pounding. No autumn color here, yet, but I'll be in the NC mountains next week. Maybe the sassafras, with their mitten shape, will be colorful.

  4. Those are all absolutely gorgeous...I am hard pressed (no pun intended!) to choose a favorite! I love Fall, too, but I sure hate what comes after it...Winter! Ugh! Oh well, we'll enjoy it while we can!

    Have a great day, my friend!



  5. Those are all georgeious Sheila.... I love the colours... and the naturalness of leaf shapes

  6. Your post cards are beautiful works of art. Autumn leaves are such lovely colours and you have captured their colours really well.
