Oh I bet you are wondering about the second part of my title for today , yes I won the Lotto but before I start getting reams of mail asking for financial help let me just explain , I did not win any money even though that would have been so wonderful ,hey I would be able to travel all over the world and visit you all but no such luck , I won the lotto on postcard pizzazz which means my mailbox will fill up with postcards all this month from those who signed up to try to win this great little prize. How many will I receive you ask , well a whopping 9 cards , pretty incredible huh , I was pretty excited actually and so far two have arrived but before I show you those postcards I would like to share the two postcards that arrived from Maria and Annette .
I received this gorgeous fall pumpkin card from Annette , she was not my partner in the swap she was just being extra nice and sent one to me along with the two partners I assigned her , she was so kind to take on an extra card when I had a last minute swapper join us , thanks so much Annette you are a sweetie . You probably can't see it here but the leaves are three dimensional with some lovely stitching for detail. Annette your card will be a lovely art piece to display for the fall season but I think I will leave it around all year long .
A couple of days ago I received this really wonderful Halloween postcard from Maria ,I was so pleased that it arrived in record time coming from Australia and now I can decorate for Halloween .
Some adorable goblins and they don't look the least bit scary , rather friendly little ghosts I would say and even some bats in the upper corner with their beady little eyes looking down on the ghosts . I love it Maria , thanks so much . I still have one card to arrive but I am sure it will soon be here and I will share it once it arrives. Maybe before I show you my lotto cards I will share the card I sent to Maria .
I had to borrow this photo from Maria , as I don't seem to have taken a picture , naughty me . A little landscape to represent the fall here in NS. , the falling colorful leaves , the green fields as well as the red fields of the blueberry fields and the beige of the farmers fields that have had their crop cut.
This cute little owl postcard was my first lotto card, those little googly eyes are kind of cute don't you think . This card traveled from Georgia and is from Sukochi .
Karen from Virgina Beach sent this card with the pompom flowers with a little bee getting some nectar and congratulations stitched across the top , so sweet . My postcard collection is really growing and you must wonder what I ever do with them all , well they are on display around my sewing space and some are stored and I change them now and then but my favorites stay out for me to enjoy all the time .
I know we are just finishing up a swap but Christmas is just around the corner and I am wondering what you feel about doing another swap with a Christmas theme . Let me know so I can make plans on a date for starting and sending , you can start making one right now if you are interested , this is an easy theme , Christmas has a broad range of ideas you can choose from so be creative . I think we could aim for the middle of November that way everyone should have their cards received to enjoy in time for the holiday season . What are your thoughts , speak now or forever hold your peace ;-)
I am off to do a little sewing so I will catch you all later , I have some lovely fall photos I want to share but time is running out for me today . Take care , enjoy your day and do something fun and creative. Thanks for stopping by .
