From Trish

This is my second card, which some of you are getting after my third! The quote is another one from Obama's speech on election night, but I kept it back until inaugration day, so I could add "President" instead of "President elect." I think we need to remind ourselves that everyone needs to do some of the heavy lifting in the days ahead.

Reach Out

Leann Meixner reached out with this:

Happy New Era!

This is a multi-block I made to celebrate Inauguration Day.

Bye Bye Bush

Donna Barnitz's postcard came flying in a while ago.

The added fun with this one is the vintage postcard it's on!

Peace, Love, Hope

I hope my card has made it to everyone by now.

The front (top half) of mine is a photoshop piece that uses a NASA image as a background and the words for "Peace, Love, Hope" in different languages in a spread that I hope evokes the American flag.

The back (lower half) is where my carved images are. The bordered text is not a carved stamp.

On Election Night, I missed the announcement that Obama got the delegates. I was working on another campaign and we were rather engrossed with watching those results come in.

I used one of my favorite Obama quotes and the 2 sizes of hands to honor the generations that came together to make this happen.
