Embrace Childhood

I've been consumed with making these Index Cards since Christmas! I've bought a few folders to send a couple of my friends so we can do some monthly challenges together but also to make our own Index Cards too. I'm using up lots of scraps from old collage sheets and images I have gathering dust. So....

on Take A Word this week the theme is CHILDHOOD.

This year is the 10 year anniversary of Sunday Postcard Art. My friend Donna (who went on to other things) and I started it so long ago.... challenge blog were all about making art for art sake in those days, except for a number of other blogs just for fun, they seem to mostly offer 'prizes'
I'm so glad we on Sunday Postcard Art continue to support each other after all these years and keep the art flowing!

this isn't a great pic but hopefully tomorrow in the daylight I will be able to get a better one.

which way back to Oz?

This week, the delightful Deann is hosting Sunday Postcard Art with the prompt of ELVES.

I've used these darlings from Hidden Vintage Studio

This first image is the original.... can you spot the mistake? yes somehow this little elf got her mascara all over her chin
 so she had to go under the knife at PSP for a face lift....

I don't normally adjust with PSP but I print another face out and add it on, however my printer isn't working and I have to keep going to my neighbour to print image so I thought instead of disturbing her I would do it digitally

Didn't we have a loverly time

This week, my Little A is hosting Sunday Postcard Art with the theme of VICTORIAN SCRAP.
I love these type of collage images and have quite a collection of them. Lots are available on Pinterest and Google.

I just love these birdie images I've used for my postcard. So quaint

Thanks for looking and commenting.
