St. Patrick's Day Luck

May the luck of the Irish be with you. What does that mean. Are Irish lucky? Or believe in luck? There's a smidgen of Irish in my veins, but March has proven to be the most unlucky month of all since 2000.  In any event, I made these postcards for a swap using the backgrounds I posted a few days ago. The square and the shamrocks are cut out from painted fusible web and ironed on. Buttons and machine stitching and viola, a green postcard.

For some history go here:

Gail my heart is aching that you have had yet more misfortune. I hope that this bad luck is surpassable.

I do like these postcards and the shamrocks look perfect. I have been catching up with your posts as I have been a bit behind. congratulations on being included in 1000 Artisan Textiles and the bleaching has worked really well, especially the block prints. I wouldn't have thought of using corrugated cardboard. Very effective. Take care of yourself.
