Boy did I push Mother's Day just to the wire. I got this card finished Thursday night and in the mail Friday. Fortunately it made it 25 miles to Mom's place Saturday. With the USPS that's not a guarantee these days.
These postcards started with a stack of sunprints that I've been hoarding for a long time. These were sunprinted with a stencil and I couldn't decided exactly what to do with them. There's nothing like time pressure to fix design angst. I felt that all they really needed was some sparkle. I outlined them with some free motion stitching using Superior Metallic thread and then added crystals.
I tend to use the crystals primarily just for Christmas so it was fun to use the "other" colors of crystals on these cards.
I made 7 all together. I only got one made before I had to get Mom's in the mail and I finished the rest by Saturday. Now my May and June birthdays are covered.
In other news, we have baby Bluebirds! I hope they have survived the unseasonably cold weather we've had this weekend. I'll check on them again in a couple of days.
