I received this lovely Christmas Postcard from my friend Doreen in Australia and I thought I would share it with you, and use this opportunity of thanking all the lovely people who visit me here, and in particular those who leave me such lovely comments. I wish each and every one of you a very Happy Christmas and also a most pleasurable and creative New Year. Many thanks, especially to Doreen. By the way, she says she used some soft tyvek, organza and felt, with gold thread stitching.
Unfortunately she didn't say what she did to achieve such a lovely effect - various green paints and a heat gun, by the look of it! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

PS. Further to the above, today I received these Postcards from two friends of mine, both of whom stitch, but neither of whom have made postcards before, but have each made me a postcard for Christmas. Isn't that just the best?

Merry Christmas Val!
In Sweden it`s frosty. No snow but one degree below zero. Hopefully it will stay that way and not rain as it usually does on Christmas Eve. I wish you and your family a Joyful and Happy Holiday!

Lots of Love to you my friend!
