This and That & April is NLWM!

Hello Friends,
Wow, was your week as busy as mine?  It's been just a tad bit crazy around here, but I wanted to get back with you as I promised to show you a little of my "playing" with the "This and That" product line this evening.  Also, You might have asked yourself what in the world NLWM stands for.   It stands for National Letter Writing Month and I am participating with 100 other ladies from around the world during the month of April to encourage sending hand written notes once again.  :)   I was so excited to open my mailbox today and find 4's a joy.  Now, onto what I created tonight.  

These are postcards stamped with the Swallowtail background stamp in Versamark and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice and Melon Mambo or Pool Party mix.   Then I chose a color and brayered over the top of the stamped image.  

Then for the back of the postcards, I used the products from the "This and That"
product line.   Washi tape to separate the sides and stickers to decorate a little.  Then I just jotted a little note to each lady.  It was simple and fun! 
 enjoy, and maybe find a few minutes to write a handwritten note too.  <3
