So I've finished my postcards and they have been sent.
I liked them but they had some last minute competition as usual (I can never make up my mind). These are the two that came head to head.
I had to decide on the lower one just on time alone. I think I prefer the coloured one now. Oh well.
I was working around some challenges, other than time though: technical (without colour printer and scanner) and personal (I am a big grub and was having trouble keeping the actual cards clean and free of inky finger prints) and I am sorry, but I broke the rules too and could not resist the corny typo.
Here is the back for addressing.
I tried to do a hand-carved stamp as I have seen here, here and here (I saw some cute ones done from an eraser but I can't find the link now - EDIT - found it!). These ladies make it look so easy. I cut rubber stamps like a bad golfer...divots everywhere. (maybe it is just the shakes from my bad caffeine addiction.)
Regardless, it was great fun and now I am waiting to get ten lovely surprises in my mail box. Thanks Myra for all your work and organisation.
