I think these postcards should have arrived at the birthday homes by now so it's safe to post pictures. Cindy and Sheila have the same birthday, so they got almost the same card! Ladies, if yours has gone missing, please let me know!
I made these two postcards for the January birthday swap I belong to on Stitchin' Fingers. For the background, I used the trimmings collage I posted about in July. I stitched it to a purple fabric so some color would show through and then added beads and trinkets. The weather has been pretty gloomy around here all month, so I needed to use the sunglasses and give them a summery feeling. And what could be more cheerful than a little sunshine and music on your birthday?
A little side fact I found interesting: There are two birthday swap groups on SF this year. Both groups had two January birthdays . . . and all four are on the same day! You can't plan for things like that to happen!
Now to get back to the February postcards. Theme? Why, Valentines, of course!
