Frieda Oxenham - Postcard mail Art swap!

My dear friend Frieda, who lives in Scotland, is the very first to send in her postcards for our 'a summer's day' mail art swap. She did something really fun too! First, Frieda made an extra postcard just for me and then she sent it through the mail separately - only the one she made for me! I received that postcard first and it was such fun! A few days later I got her package of three postcards for the swap in the mail. : ^  ) Frieda's postcards are a mix of fabric and paper and she describes how she made them in this post on her blog . . . here: A summer's day fabric postcards.

Frieda created the fabric background herself -read how on her blog!
She also created the strip of fabric with a flower design that says, A summer's Day.
Then she took this flower design, lightly printed it on paper and used it for the back.

My postcard is the one directly above.  ; ^ )  thank you, Frieda!!! I love it.

Frieda chose Train stamps for my husband and I, as we recently went on a train!
So cool.
