    Postcard for my Mom

    I threw this together from a free PP pattern I printed off the internet. The picture didn't come out all that great and the rose looks better in person. I should have used alot of different shades of pink to make the rose better. My sons picked the fabric and wrote the message on the back. First one I have done and I finished it in about an hour. Got all the mistakes out of the way on this one...

    Oh, and my mom can use it as a coaster or tiny mug rug. Postage was close to $2.00 as I had to send it as a "parcel." The Post Office workers said they had never seen one before. Hope it arrives safely.

    Re: Rose Postcard

    I have read that fabric postcards like yours should be enclosed in envelopes for mailing to ensure their safe arrival at destination!

    Oops. I have a book on making quilted postcards and they have stamps placed directly on the postcard. I will know better for next time. Thanks for the advice.

    That is neat. I have heard of them before, but never made one.

    I think it is a great gift. I'm sure your mom will love it. Thanks for sharing.
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    Love your postcard for Grandma. I am sure she will be so tickled with is, especially with the signatures of her grand children!!
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!
