summer solstice

So a while back I signed up to participate in a postcard swap (hosted by Andrea) to celebrate the first day of summer. Then the days flew by and now it's time to send the cards. I worked furiously on them last night and they're ready to go. I painted corregated cardboard and chopped it up into 4" x 6" pieces. Then I glued on a digital collage and stamped circles and/or lines onto each card.

The guy in the bathing suit is my grandfather, Charlie. Here's the original photo of my grandparents, mother (bottom right), two aunts (and three people I don't recognize) at the beach.

happy summer solstice.

Nifty postcards! I kept thinking that your looked familiar, as I wrote out my postcards the other night and then I realized it was because of Quilting Arts Magazine. I LOVE your art quilts! They totally rock!

Okay, my brain is moving faster than my fingers can type. What I meant to say was your NAME looked familiar (that key word was left out - duh!)
