"Hi Nanette, yes the background is done on an embellisher. I have had it for about a year and not really got around to using it, so this was part of a larger piece that I made and then I just embellished it on top. So glad you like…"

Don't know how to send a private message, so I am leaving my email address here for you, so that we can exchange postal addresses for the Christmas Exchange.

Shelley, I had your name on a list to swap with my aussie textile kids... were you still interested in swapping ? I'm sorting addresses etc today and I hadn't heard from you.
I have plenty to swap if your too busy I can add you to the list for our next project. we might dye some fabric or screen print some of our own fabric.
I have just received your Christmas postcard - love it!! It really is the most 'Christmassy' FPC I have - the colours and design are gorgeous. Thank you very much. I will scan it over the next day or so, and post a photo on my blog. Hope mine arrived safely.
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, leave your address, and I'll send you mine. I thought email addresses were on profiles somewhere, but they don't seem to be, or else I've forgotten how to find them. I've got my card made, but can't mail it till next week when I get back home.
Hi again Shelley,
Some people send their postcards through the mail without any protective covering at all, and they seem to arrive okay. Other people use clear plastic or cellophone 'envelopes' so the postcard can still be seen without taking it out of an ordinary envelope. I get my post office to place the stamp on my FPCs, manually postmark it, then put it back into a protective plastic bag; my FPCs usually have beads or buttons, which could be a nuisance in the mail sorting equipment!
To join the Halloween swap, would you mind posting a comment on that Group Discussion (just click on Add Comment under Halloween Swap) and say you want to be in it. I already know you do, but I've asked everyone to do the same thing, so I don't have to look in different places to see if anyone else wants to join a particular swap.
Hi Shelley, I saw your message on the Fabric postcards forum and thought it best to answer you here on your own page. Fabric postcards are the same size as a regular postcard, i.e. 6" x 4". If you have time to scroll back on early discussions on the forum, you will find lots of information about how people make them. Everyone is different, so it pays to have a look at the profile pages of the Group members (click on their photo where they have posted a comment) and see what they do.
Joining in one of the exchanges is easy - just keep an eye on the Discussions as they come up on the Group pages, and post a comment if you want to participate. Your name will be added to the list, and when it is finalised, you'll have either one person to swap with, or you will receive a card from someone, and have to send yours to someone else. The only exchange still open at the moment is the Halloween exchange, and that will be finalised at the end of September. Hope this helps, and don't hesitate to post any more questions if you're not sure!
