Calendar Girls August postcard

Here is the postcard that I have made for Sandy for the Calendar Girls challenge.
I have not been well and have struggled with ideas for this month challenge but while I was at our local patchwork shop I noticed the lovely wool felt that they had and it came in beautiful colours so the ideas started to form in my head.
I cut all the pieces out and arranged them on the background but then I couldn't decide whether to hand sew them on or to use the machine.
Finally I took the easy way out and used the embellisher.
The gold flower centre is made from a scrap that I had left over from the workshop that I did last month.
The flower pot is made from a used teabag

I hope you like it Sandy

It's lovely Doreen - I'm sure Sandy will love it. Those colours, the purple and gorgeous shade of green - no wonder you couldn't resist!

Glad you feeling better. Love the postcard for Sandy.

You know I like this one! A lavender flower!! And I doubt that any used teabag ever looked so good!

I hope you keep feeling better.

Tea bags are our new art supply. They have such lovely colors. Love the card.

Very pretty...simple, but elegant. Good thing tea drinking season is approaching for us...I'll have to save them!

Lovely postcard Dot,
I hope you're back to full strength, we've had lots of nasty viruses going around down here as well
