    Jeanette, I'll start another group, hang on someone will jump in. Keep checking this thread.
    Carol your "springy" ingredients arrived today and my head is in a whirl as to how I will approach this. What fun. You didn't send me the Easter bunny though, what will I do?????? A lovely package of ideas was tucked in that envelope, thank you sooo much.
    Cathy when you are ready we'll be here.

    I would love to play along with this. If I'm reading the thread correctly I would be partnered with jetlag. BTW, where is Milton? Since I'm new at this I want to check that I have this correctly: I send a batch of materials to my partner and she makes me a postcard from them. She sends me a batch of materials and I make a postcard for her. Have I got it?

    You've got it Juliet and welcome. Not sure what a "batch" is in your mind but enough to make a PC, assortment of "things", you do not need to send the stiffening material.
    PM jetleg and exchange mailing addresses. Post here when you mail your ingredients.
    Carol, surprise me and then post it, I love surprises.

    WOW! that was quick, mailed that on Thursday morning. Maybe because we are neighbors?
    Anyways thanks for letting me know the PC arrived and that you are pleased. Here is the card. Carol had sent me spring colors in fabrics, beads, sequins, embroidery thread, ribbons, a napkin and organdy with glitter on them. I did not use all of her fabrics and added a feather and some yarn of my own in the mix. I crossed pieced the fabric to make a rue and in some of the seams I added the ribbon and feathery yarn, appliqued the flower on the napkin and flower printed organdy on top. The layered a piece of glitter organdy over it to hold especially the paper down. Stitched the green embroidery thread and the sequins over that and did some hand bead work to finish it off. Also posted the back of the card on which I used the glue paper with a quote, message for Carol and her address all printed on the computer. I did mail the PC in a clear bag with 58 cents postage.
    So my trade with Carol is complete.

    What about the rest of you ladies. Elaine have my ingredients arrived yet?

    Received a package of goodies and a finished postcard from Paperfairy (Elaine) today. What a surprise and looks like she had lots of fun. I recognized some of the mediums in it, thanks Elaine.

    Carol don't worry about the card, spend all the time you can with your loved one, it really is very important. Hugs to you for taking care of his needs today.
