Sometimes it's best to pull out the paints, paper and thread. Here's my entry to the GREAT BIG STITCHED POSTCARD SWAP hosted by Beth Kempton's Do What You Love in association with Coats.

I've been drawing on my iPhone using Sketchbook Pro Mobile, and created the Carolina Wren while waiting in line at the Department of Motor Vehicles! I printed the drawing on my inkjet printer, cut it out & collaged it onto a background painted in acrylic along with some embroidery, and stitched it to a paper backing … then popped it in the mail to my swap partner in the U.K.
