Sian's Valentines Postcard Swap

As soon as Sian posted news of her Valentine's Postcard Swap, I signed up! I love getting happy mail, I love sending it. I had also just been cleaning out some scrapbooking stash and came across this "pile of postcards" from a very old Stacy Julian class. I knew they would be perfect for this swap!

I sent to Katie Brandist, Karen Parkhurst, Lizzy Hill, Liz Lee, Sonja Wright, and Shirley Kaboom - ALL of whom were brand new to me. I have visited all their blogs as well. Those are some talented ladies! I also sent out some extras to established blog friends. Don't worry if you didn't get something this go around - there will be more!

To date I have received from Melissa (top left), Rinda (top right), Barbara (center), Jo (bottom left) and Karen (bottom right).  I don't know if they all had my name from the swap or not (I know that Jo's was!) ... I may still have more happy mail to look forward to!

Aren't these cards just gorgeous!?!

Hi Cheri,
mine was just an RAK for being nice enough to comment on my "picking the post card" post, so you should still have more on the way!
