Quick Note

Just a quick hello from my sick bed! I have been struck down by the worst flu ever! Been in bed for a couple of days and just got up to answer the door to the postman! It's been snowing here too - and I never knew!! Anyway this brief note is to show you three postcards that have made me feel a whole lot better - one from Marilyn - so delicate
one from Doreen - so textural
one from Melinda - so sweet ! Thank you ladies!

Now just before I go back to bed a question for you fabric charm 1" square makers..... I used up some scrap from previous postcards to make these 1" fabric squares - sadly before I read Sue B's wonderful tutorial on the subject, anyway they are made now but a) how do I get an eyelet small enough? I have a Prym Vario Tool for setting large eyelets such as into my stays and I have previously tried the craft type eyelets but don't have anything to set them with properly - they just squash and ruin the item ------any one any suggestions as to how I can get a proper tool for tiny eyelets - make model etc and b) what on earth do you do with these tiny works of art?????? Oh and one other question for the mixed media types out there - if you make a mixed media ATC what goes on the back? Is it just plain with date signature etc or do you decorate it too? I'm going to dream about making mixed media ATC's.......

Sorry you're not feeling well Anna :(

I put a sticker on the back of my atc's with my name, website and the year. Sometimes I'll include a description of what the card is made out of.

With all my ATCs (fabric, paper or mixed) I always write: title of card, number of card, my name, my location, my email.
Hope you're feeling better soon :)

You don't *have* to put a hole in. Mine will be displayed on a background of some sort.

Hi Anna.........I am honored to have you post my card on your website ! I received my purple card from you yesterday and I was delighted to get it. My collection is so varied and all the cards are nice in their own way, but yours is what I call outstanding ! Thanks.
