GETTING MY POST CARDS! & MY ALTERED PICTURE

POST CARD FROM THE UK : This first post card is from http://www.lillyicity.blogspot.com/ in the UK. She has several layers , I think she described how on her blog. Love it. Like the pic in the middle taken with her iPhone. Thanks Sandra for the great card!
SWEET LITTLE GIRL: on a thousand mile trip. I am not sure where this one came from. But she sure is sweet! Thanks Anita for the wonderful post card.
A DOVE & BUTTERFLY'S : This card is a unique post card in the the fact that it opens up! Made and sent to me from Rachel at http://raeisravenous.blogspot.com/ Cool post card thanks Rachel!
RACHEL'S POST CARD OPEN
WHAT I STARTED WITH: I posed about this several days ago and I thought I would show you the finished project.
FINISHED: I think! I wish that the color would show up better. I guess if I had a better camera it would. The frame is painted black with regular craft paint, with some fashion yarn around it.I told you about the coloring of the girls in the other post. I added an old key tied with yarn. Stamped around the girls with one of my new jelly stamps. At the bottom is circle cut outs from and old paper doily. And put a lavender rhinestone button on the doily. I named it Forever Sisters. Cut the forever from magazine, and painted the word sisters with a Sharpie Paint Pen. It is very faint going down the right side.
CLOSE UP OF THE TOP: In this pic you can see the stamped pocket watches. I was thinking of putting the word "in" before the watches, making the title Forever in (time) the (watches) Sisters. What do you think any comments ?
CLOSE UP OF BOTTOM WEATHER IN MELBOURNE FL.: HOT HOT AND HOT! In the 90's last few days, and wall to wall sun. Cool down to the 80's tomorrow. lol


I have started to weed out and pack up the Florida room. It will be to hot and muggy this summer to leave stuff in there. Especially when I cant keep my eye on it. So I am going to take with me a few things to work on and pack up the rest in totes. I ask dad if his friend Ron might be able to put an AC in there. We have a window one just sitting on the back patio. I plugged it in and it works, so I am hoping he can fix it up for me.

Well that's all for now thanks for looking and please feel free to leave a comment.

Blessings

Donna
