California Spring

A couple of weeks ago some friends and I spent a day in the Santa Ynez Valley and were dazzled by the luscious green hills and the profusion of wild flowers everywhere. Poppies were even coming up through the cracks in the pavement. Gorgeous day and great fun with good friends. Sorry I don't have any photos to share.

I am participating in the postcard exchange for the Cyber Fyber Exhibition being sponsored by Susan Lenz and was inspired to create my own version of the green hills, the lupine, and the poppies for her. The card is made from commercial fabric stamped with gold metallic ink, stenciled with foil glue then foiled with silver, foil glue randomly applied and foiled with green, and embroidery.

All traded postcards will be displayed at CYBER FYBER, January 8 - 20, 2009 at Gallery 80808/Vista Studios in Columbia, SC. Check out Susan's blog for all the exchanges, I'm #139.

Beautiful postcard. I know Susan will love it. I wish I could see the exhibit; I bet it's going to be great.

Gorgeous! Looks like Spring to me! Sounds like you had a nice trip.

I'm thrilled! Yes, I'm doubly thrilled because now I secretly know what's inside the envelope that the mailman just delivered. I haven't opened it yet and will resist the urge to do so. Why? Well, this coming Monday I'm going to a meeting with a potential corporate sponsor, a member of the South Carolina Arts Commission, and a few other people. It's been arranged by the local Cultural Council. My plan is to take a few unopened trades to the meeting and allow these potential donors the pleasure of opening a few trades. I'll blog about it on the CYBER FYBER journal after the experience. So, basically, this is a note to let you know that the trade has arrived safely and will make its public debut on Monday! Thanks so very, very much!
