Post Challenge

Hi ladies

You may remember ,a while back, I encouraged you all to enter a postcard in the Reader's Challenge for ClothPaperScissors . Well guess what!When I received my copy of the latest edition of ClothPaperScissors ( May/June 2012- issue 42) , I was paging through looking at all the beautiful pieces of art when I came across the "Post Challenge" pictures - my fabric postcard was on page 86. I couldn't believe it! They received more than 200 postcards and my postcard was one of 41 postcards that were published.
There were postcards from all parts of the world- UK, Australia, South Africa, Canada and  America .
Wow!! I am so happy ! I must mention that some of the techniques I used , I learnt from Glenda. Thank you Glenda!
