A couple of postcards to share

I think I am becoming addicted to making postcards because I seem to be thinking up new uses for them. As you may know  I am going to a baby shower tonight and delivering the baby quilt I showed you last week so I needed a card and thought why not make a postcard in place of using a card I would buy at the store so that is exactly what I did , want to see it , ok you twisted my arm ;-)
 It is simple enough , just her name with a little lace and a button and some stitches from my machine but I think it is kind of cute.
 I am in a postcard exchange and the theme is your favorite pumpkin recipe so I thought about that for a while and came up with this plan and I am just so pleased with how this turned out ,who said a postcard has to be a rectangle right.Cute don't you think. Now I need to make three more of these as I want to keep one for me too.
 I know I didn't share this card that I made last month sometime so will show you that even the selvages from your fabrics make great postcards .Colorful and a nice scrappy look.
Am I having fun , yeah I sure am , I just love making postcards . Thanks for stopping by and hope your day is going well. hugs Sheila
