This week's outgoing postcards

I stayed up way too late making post cards last night.  They started off kind of sweet and pretty (or at least as sweet and pretty as I ever get).  The first one is made from dictionary pages glued together to make a stiff card.  The next two (though you can't really see it) are "quilted" - magazine pages glued together and then machine stitched in random patterns.



But I can't stand too much pretty, so I started adding my bug stamps to other cards that felt a little cloying.
(after I posted my stamp tutorial, my mother emailed me to beg me to never send her anything with this fly on it.  Doesn't she know by now that this is the QUICKEST way to get me to do something?  It's taking an enormous amount of restraint not to send her a fly-a-day. You're welcome, Mom.)
Things got darker as the evening progressed.

Hoping to get these out in tomorrow's mail.
