Getting all Felt up.
I WISH. Oh well, some day my prince will come (but he'd better hurry, I'm not getting any younger). I promised myself a couple of months ago that I would participate in the Fabric Postcard Challenge here and this card is my first time. I'm a fabric postcard virgin. (born-again no doubt) The Opus Challenge this week was to use felt in a project. That was what prompted me to get my rear in gear and get this puppy done. You'll notice the background is stippled felt. I would like to mention that while in an earlier life I used to be a (pretty prolific) quilter, I haven't really done anything with fabric for many a moon. So given that fact, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I think the fence and flower fabric was from a Mary Englebret collection. In fact, come to think of it there is a quilt of her fabric hanging at the top of the stairs. Interesting, that had to be almost 30 years ago. See, it pays to be a hoarder, of sorts. If I hadn't saved this fabric, I wouldn't have been able to have done the postcard challenge, nor the Opus Challenge. So sad. I want you to know I'm not one of those hoarders they have on tv: "BURIED ALIVE". Those creep me out. I only hoard craft supplies. There's a BIG difference.
for instance.......ummmm..........OK, no big difference, but there should be because it's not the same. Not the same at all.
I also will use this postcard (heck, it took me a long time@) for this week's blogparty at Everything Etsy here
