Today I mailed my postcard to its recipient, Kate Bohles, in Ilkley, England. Before I sent it I sent a message via email to Kate to let her know it is on its way. She replied with a lovely note that included her shop address and a link to a cross stitch site, since I mentioned I used cross stitch on the card. I'll be posting photos of the postcard after Kate has received it. In the meantime, I thought it would be lovely to point out her shop and add a link to it on Sallymomsprouts. She is an art teacher, book creator, and the proud mother of two beautiful daughters. I hope you enjoy meeting her through her work.
The theme of this exchange was bloom. I chose a typically American summer flower, the Indian Summer Rudbeckia. I used this photo of them from my city garden on the address side of the card. I faded it so it wouldn't detract from the stitched side.
Oh, and I also flipped it 180 degrees.
I hope you enjoy it, Kate.
