    For 2018, how bout a Color My World theme. I will pair two colors a month, drawn randomly, and u will make a postcard using those two colors. you can add another color, but the main theme must center around the colors of the month.

    Other ideas were

    Wacky Holidays
    Picking two letters a month and designing a postcard depicting one of them o
    Artsy theme such as wavy, circular, straight, landscape, stripes, dots, stars, and then i am stuck for other terms.

    Let me know your thoughts.

    I'm in for December.

    For 2018 I like the idea of all of the themes. This way we get to mix it up and will truly be surprised at a new challenge each month. It will really push us too creative.

    I have been a lurker of these postcards for awhile now and I just love them all.
    Cookie- your themes sound so great. I just wanted to throw in some more for you. Lol. How about picking a US state and doing a postcard on any information about that such as; the capital, bird, flower and other facts. How about themes of movies, eras, inventions, different flowers, circus, a different word each month and we have to create a poastcard interrupting that word such as; create, love, inspire, home, freedom and so on.
    Just some ideas

    I have to tell you all I have been lurking and stalking your postcard swaps for awhile now and love seeing all your creations! They just amaze me. So, I joined you this month and am excited to be part this time.

    I have already started on mine and I am loving it so far! This is my first ever postcard so I am excited and anxious at the same time. But I can tell now why you all are addicted to these little things it is really fun to see what you can fit on a 4x6 piece of fabric!! Fun fun!
