The theme of the internet postcard swap was "Baskets".  Trying to think outside the box, I thought of baskets and basketball. James Naismith  invented the sport of basketball in 1891 in Springfield, Massachusetts to condition young athletes during the winter. The objective of the game was to throw the basketball, into the fruit baskets nailed to the lower railing of the gym balcony. Every time a point was scored, the game was halted so the janitor could bring out a ladder and retrieve the ball. After a while, the bottoms of the fruit baskets were removed. The first public basketball game was played in Springfield, Massachusetts, on March 11, 1892

"Sheer Bliss" Fabric postcards

The sheer layers have snowflakes between them that move when shaken. More snowflakes are sewn to the top. The snowmen are on the back of the postcards before I addressed them to their new homes in Sweden and Australia.

This is what I got back in the sheer bliss theme from Christine in Victoria, Australia.

Internet Tag swap

We are swapping tags in my internet postcard group. My tag is from Michigan, The Great Lakes State. We often point to the back of our hand to point to locations in Michigan.
This was designed in Make the Cut software, printed on fabric, colored with inks and pens, appliqued and stitched.

These are some I got back in the swap... from Florida ,California, and New Zealand..just beautiful!
