Fabric Postcard

Havent been feeling to good lately this wet weather is playing havoc with my arthritis,have such a lot of swaps and stuff to do,thought i would make a start this morning,its just tipping it down out there ughhhh. So just finished No 1 swap this fabric postcard,fabric dye'd with Colour wash sprays,the heart i cut out on my diecut machine and backed with felt,I am now devastated as my printers packed in my own fault doing these transfered images through it on freezer paper,I think dust from the fabric has built up round the rollers so it keeps sticking,oooh well,puts thinking cap on,what to do next,it was doing such a good job with these images too ! There is beads hanging on the metal ring you cant see here !
