The Great, Big, Stitched Postcard Swap

"Let's Create"

February 2014

Recently I participated in the great, big, stitched postcard swap with Paperlove and Do What You Love! It was sooooo much fun. I received the most beautiful postcard in the mail from my swap partner in Massachusetts. She even illustrated and stitched together the envelope! So creative. And this is the one I sent to her. What fun! I can't wait for the next swap!
