      These look so beautiful, also a good way to revive the dying practice of sending postcards. I love postcards. Thanks for this awesome giveaway.

      I love Eric Carle and his books and so do the kids. When my daughter was in college, she was near the Eric Carle Museum. If anyone is ever near Amherst, MA, even if it means a slight detour, it is well worth a visit.
