bE wHo YoU ArE

This week on SPa we are celebrating WOMEN by offering the theme of 1950's PINUPS ... I just adore Gil Elvgren 's photographs from the 40's and 50's .... I've used a couple here for my postcards for this week!

Thank you for taking time to look at my ART and commenting :-D

Mandy, it's a fab theme, but you have more than done it justice - love your postcards! DH & I are Elvgren fans too and have about 10 of his gals as mounted prints - found 'em at a car boot sale a few years ago, would you believe?!

I know jealousy is a BAD thing but ... oh my goodness these are absolutely gorgeous and .... yes I admit it, I'm a teeny tiny bit jealous that you made the very best '50s pin ups ever. Bravo.

Yes, those are some majorly awesome photograph's Mandy..I can see why you love them so. I adore the Boston of course, but I do love the other as well...she's one touch chick and is a nice reminder that we can do anything if we put our minds to it!
They are both wonderful to look at and I enjoyed them so. Thanks amy
