Postcard #44 Slovenia

Week 44 finds us in Slovenia.  I knew absolutely nothing about Slovenia.  After reviewing it on the computer I found many pictures of lovely places and landscape that I would love to personally see.
But I also went to my go to book and found costumes of Slovenia that I loved because of the colors. So I took that route again.

Dear Zoey:
Here I am again on the road while you and the kids are holding down the home front.  Five more
days and then home to my family.  Saw this postcard and knew it was for you.  Hugs Kiss Love

Postcard #43 - Finland

This week finds us in Finland.  I did some research on Finland.....loved the flag.  Saw that you could see Santa Claus Village, Lapland, Finland and the Northern Lights all at one place.  So I went with this theme.

To make my postcard base I used Alcohol Inks to create a look of Northern Lights (well so so).
I added Santa and a tree to go with the theme.

Postcard #41 - Scotland

This week finds us in Scotland.  I had more time this week so I actually finished early and was able to do a little research on Scotland.  I liked the flag and thought I would us it for the background of a costume. I know you are all probably tired of seeing these costumes....but I had already started deconstructing this book and did not know when I would ever get the chance to use it again, so I am continuing with the destruction.

Postcard #40 - Portugal

This week finds us in Portugal.  I am still having computer problems....using old hard drive that seems to have a mind of it own and only lets me do certain things.  We also have had our annual Fall Festival going on all week and we have gone for lunch and dinner every day this week.  It is a great support of a lot of local churches and non-profit groups.

Dear Ann:
Thank you so much for keeping the kids on such short notice.  I was so happy to be able to go do this special project on Portugal Culture for my old magazine.  Nice to be asked for special assignments to keep me out there.  Love & kisses to Sophia & Samuel.....Love Zoey
