I am so behind already this year...

Wow the title says it all....
I promised a Valentines day swap.. 
I have racked my brain trying to think of something new. 
I know a lot of ladies suggested siggy quilt blocks with sayings.. 
I have to be honest.. 
It was a great idea.. but I wasn't feeling that sorry!!!
I have decided its going to be something we have already done but with a twist....
You say to yourself what are we going to be making... 
We all know that I love .. 
LOVE to make mug rugs.. 
Yes you guessed it ...
we are making a modified version of a Mug Rug.
We are going to make........

Valentines Day Fabric Post Cards .. 
but mug rug size ( 8" X 10"size)

 I don't want these to be your ordinary mug rugs... 
 Let's make them like mini art quilts... 
Lot's of lace and embellishments... 
fun fun fun stuff.... 
A Valentines day verse or saying... 
They should be sort of like trading a Valentines Day Card...
I hope everyone gets the idea... 
a post card only mug rug size (8" X 10")
Once you decide you want to play along please start your project..
before you are assigned your partner... 
to have enough time to complete on time....

Should we use TIMTEX when making the mug rug? I've made an oversized postcard, using Timtex, sent via the mail with extra postage, and my friend decided to use it as a mug rug. Just a little bit of guidance.
