My last postcard for a while...the deadline for the "Sistah to Sistah, Try Something New" swap, hosted by my friend Rosie Chapman, was in SEPTEMBER, for goodness sakes! I just could not get motivated to work on cards...totally burned out! The theme of this swap was to experiment and try a new technique that you had not used before. I tried several new techniques, but none of them were worthy. Might have had something to do with my frame of mind. So the "try something new" for me was to digitize the Obama logo (which I downloaded from his website, and which is available for personal use...no copyright violation!) in my Artista software, and designed this postcard in the software. I FINALLY put them in the mail Saturday, along with my passport renewal (with additional expedite fees for my procrastination!). When I came up with the idea it was very current, but I think the recipients will still appreciate the sentiment. I couldn't resist the Sarah Palin "you betcha" dig!
