PostCard #26 - USA

This week find us in the good old USA....which is where I live.  I chose to picture my front yard as the front of my postcard.

This was a picture I took of the dogwood trees in bloom in the Spring and you can barely see my house from the trees.


postcard reads:
Dear Ann:
Finally after all that traveling we are back in the USA visiting Bill's grandparents in Evansville, IN.
We traveled here to tell them they are going to be Great-Grandparents in September.  Postcard is actual photo of their home.  Bill has such fond memories of this home.  Hugs & kisses to John, Andrew & isabella. Love and Kisses .... Zoey.

ICAD #26

ICAD #26
Today's ICAD was made using a piece of paper towel my granddaughter, Holli, used while she was watercoloring while staying with us for a few days.  I hated throwing it in the trash so I told her I would save it and use it on my cards.  I added a few foam titles, her name and inked the edges.
I have one more great piece to use on a card. Need to find a few items to go with it for tomorrow.

This was another Use It Up project.  I am going through my  stash piles of scraps, bits and pieces of this and that and using it up..
Nothing new is purchased to make this project.

Postcard #25 - Australia

This week finds us in Australia.  I did all kinds of researching....the flag, kangaroos and boomerangs.  I then went and checked out my old National Geographics and found an article about Australia.  One of the pictures I found was of a Salt Lake in Australia.  I thought ..... looks like something I could do with water colors....and I wanted to use them more than I have.  So the Salt Lake.....not very colorful but  something I thought I could handle.
