Postcards and Lanterns

I joined in Sheila's Postcard Exchange http://sheilasquiltworld.blogspot.com/  and received this beautiful postcard from my partner, Sharon, who is also "up north" as we say here,
 in Nova Scotia.

I love the musical fabric and the Broderie Perse applique roses. 
Thank you, Sharon.
 
These are the cards I sent to Sharon.  These were my first fabric postcards, and I love making these things.
 
 
 
I designed the top card and used a Sizzix die for the second. 
 
This is another I made.
 
You see, they become addictive.  You can let your creativity take over and play.  My only issue is that my wonderful little sewing machine has only a few decorative stitches. 
Thanks for organizing the exchange, Sheila.  I'm happy I joined in the fun.
 
The third lantern block is called Double Ladder.
 

 
God Bless You.

Just fun postcards - little projects do aid in letting your creative juices grow. Your lanterns are looking just fine - love the pink/red ones.

Love all the little postcards, they are just so cute. I'm looking forward to seeing this Lantern quilt when you finish. Looks intriguing and a good way to use scraps.

Lovely postcards. You're so creative. Are you able to mail these as postcards or do you put them into an envelope before mailing.
