08/08/08 Postcard Swap

I was in the 080808 Postcard Swap. We each had to make 8 postcards and mail them to 8 different people and then we should each get 8 different postcards back. They were all suppose to be postmarked 08/08/08. Mine actually made it to the post office about 10 minutes before they closed. I can't believe it! I was actually on time for once!! Anyway here's my postcards. I have never made a postcard before and I wasn't sure how much embellishing I could do so I just stuck with something simple and machine stitched the background paper to an index card and then machine stitched the cupcakes on top of that.
I also mailed one to Mallory since her birthday was on 08/08/08 and to myself for my scrapbook. Mallory mailed one to someone special to her too. So I hope I didn't break the good luck of the 080808 by mailing 11 cards out!!
