City Crafter Postcards

Hello and Good Morning ...

This week at City Crafter Sweet Linda Robinson is our host and she is challenging us to make a Postcard ... another first for me and I knew just what I wanted to do ...

When I was a little girl I had a cousin ... Marcelle ... she was beautiful, vivacious and everyone who ever met her fell in love with her ... She was older than me by about 5/6years and lived a very different life from me in London ... and whilst a teenager she went off to Spain ... She sent me a postcard of a Spanish dancer
The dress was made of layer upon layer of frills in ribbon and covered in sequins ... I thought it was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen and for many years it was a treasured possession ... I lost my cousin 29years ago ... and I never forgot that postcard or her inner and outer beauty ... 
My Postcard is in remembrance ... done in my style


With the exception of the dress ... everything here is digital


... and just to show you the reverse ...


I created the wording in Photoshop and added stamp graphics

So ... do you have a Postcard memory? ... why not join us at CCCB this week and share it? 
Our wonderful Guest Designer this week is ... Karen Letchworth ... I love her work ... and our sponsor this week is Catherine Pooler of Stamp Nation ... Catherine is offering a 2 week membership to Stamp Nation FREE to our winner ...

Well, have I tempted you? I hope so ... 

Have yourselves a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by
