Back into the swing of things

I can get carried away once I start and I have now completed several postcards , want to see them ?
I used a stencil I have which I think just came from the dollar store , anyway I then I  colored each one and stitched around the stencil shape . Another section of the same stencil produced this one ....

A birthday cake and the candle is another part which I set on top and again used my crayons and stitched around , kind of fun to do :-)

Using the same balloon stencil I cut it from fabric and appliqued it on this great fabric that looks like ribbons floating around , perfect for a party I think :-)
A little hard to see this but the bunny is in a basket that we hope is filled with lots of eggs with a few that spilled out  and I made a little banner that says Happy Easter 

 And finally a Valentine postcard , I did a couple more but didn't take any photos yet and I don't want to bore you with postcards so I promise my next post will not be about postcards .
 The sun is shining just beautifully today , still kind of cool but much better than it was and rain is in the forecast for the weekend which should take care of all the ice around here . I am off now to see what new project I can start on , I think I have had enough of postcards for now . 
 Take care and thanks for stopping  by .
 hugs Sheila

Olá, Sheila!
Seus postais são muito bonitos e criativos! Parabéns!
Sou uma estudante iniciante desta forma de artesanato/arte. Vou fazer um pedido que você talvez ache estranho: por favor, mostre o verso de um dos seus cartões. Nunca pequei um destes cartões. Um papel grosso é costurado nele?
Quero aprender mais um pouco.
Muito obrigada!
Um abraço do Brasil para você!

Hello, Sheila!
Your cards are beautiful and creative! Congratulations!
I am a beginning student of this form of craft / art. I'll make a request that you may find strange: please show the back of one of your cards. Never sinned one of these cards. A thick paper is sewn on it?
I want to learn a little more.
Thank you!
Hugs from Brazil for you!

Love them all - good idea to use the stencil for applique and also the colouring. Glad to hear the weather is sorting itself out!
