Pet Postcards

Once again this year the International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX is having a postcard sale to raise money for Friends for Life, a no kill animal shelter in Houston.  The 4" x 6" cards, which sell for $20,  have raised over $60,000 in the last two years.  Since they used one of my postcards from last year for the promo, I felt I should do some more.  And they are really fun to make.

You've seen the little bull dog before so I won't show you a close-up of him.  I used a fabric for all the backgrounds that looked like a field of flowers, then fused on dogs and one cat that I had fussy-cut from a juvenile print.  Then I embroidered grass and flowers with a very heavy Jeans thread.  I think they're pretty cute and hope they will sell.

Hurry - you solved your problem! Hope it wasn't too bad an ordeal.
The post cards are adorable and I hope they raise a lot of money. As I cat softy I think I would go for the cat - although the patch dog is very cute!
