iHanna's DIY Postcard Swap

in wandering around the internet looking for blogs of inspiration, I came across iHanna's blog.  Her header caught my eye, so I decided to read more.  I have to say that her artwork is wonderful!  It has realy inspired me.  So, at that time, I decided to bookmark her blog until I had more time to read and browse through.  When I went back to read more, I found where she is hosting this wonderful postcard swap.  For a small fee, you get your name out in the mix.  She sends you ten names to send your postcard to.  In return, you have to make ten handmade postcards.  I am going to post a couple of the ones I have made, but I am not going to say anything about who I will be sending mine to this year.  All I am going to say is that I will be sending them all over the world, and some here in the US.  When I receive the postcards coming to me, I will post them.  AND, when I know my cards have been received, then I will post about where they went to.  I love the element of surprise and can't wait to get my ten postcards.  So, for now, I am off to make a couple more cards to send out to some very talented ladies.  Good luck to everyone and I can't wait to see what I get.  so, in the meantime, pop on over to her blog and check out her amazing work.

  1. Purty cards - I especially love that old Polish stamp you have used on the top one

    This is my first year taking part in the swap too and I am also super excited!

    I will be rushing home from work every night to see what the postman has brought to me :)

  2. Hi Melanie...I saw your name at Hanna's blog...clicked on it and here I am. I really like your use of old text and stamps on your cards. This is my third year to participate...it is really fun to get cards from all over the globe. Good luck on your venture into art journaling.

  3. Soft and romantic these post cards, lovely. xox Corrine

  4. Thank you ladies! This is my first year. I have done scrapbooking for many years, and fund this very different but fun! Would love to send anyone a card that would like one.

  5. Mel, thanks for such awesome kind words about my artwork & blogging - I so appreciate it and I'm sitting here smiling big. :-) I hope you will get many beautiful cards in the mail.

    Take care!
