Spring Lady fabric postcard (wed stamper spring and Leahs monthly postcard challenge)


I quite like making fabric postcards as you can use them as toppers for cards, embellishments for bags, journal covers etc etc. I have stamped an elegant lady on to some of my dyed fabric and surrounded her with stamped swirls and grass. I have added the word dream and some stamped fabric painted flowers. The challenge over at Wed Stampers is Spring so think this fits in with all the spring colours. Over at Leahs monthly fabric postcard the challenge is words to live by..well I think dream is a pretty good word to live by..without dreams we have nothing after all...
I was listening to the radio today and it mentioned ladies day at Aintree races which takes place every year the day before the main horse race. I think this lady is dreaming about going to the races to drink pimms and champagne all day..(this has never appealed to me as I am too much of a tomboy and I dont like champagne!)..are there any events near you that are like this? I think I must be in a summer mood as I am listening to some Black Uhuru reggae even though its raining yet again outside.

Your 'Dream' card is ideed elegant, Lorraine - and I have enjoyed looking through your work on your blog. Beautiful and inspirational!
I have never thought of using stamps as part of mine before - but last night (before reading your blog) - I fished a couple out to try - but they were freebies and less than elegant!
I'm looking forward to see what everyone comes up with for the April challenge.
