I encourage everyone to participate, it doesn't take that long to make one and send it in. For more information, you can see Pokey's blog post: http://pokeysponderings.com/2013/06/28/quilters-its-time-to-get-busy-quilt-festivals-pet-postcard-project-is-back/
I made six, one for each of my dogs. We don't have six dogs now, these are just all the dogs I've had and loved (not counting the lots and lots from growing up). Six cards also fit easily on two 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper (to run through the printer). I fixed my pictures in photoshop and then printed them onto regular fabric (I used a very light green batik) which had been stuck to a full size mailing label. The first three may look familiar, they're just slightly altered versions of the larger dog portraits. The other three are pictures of my dogs which either passed away before or came to us after the large dog portrait project started. For those, I found a picture of the dog I liked and superimposed the dog on a brightly colored abstracted background.

I don't know what I'd do without the dogs!
