Dear Darcy:
We wanted to thank you for the wonderful places our families have been able to
visit and learn about due to your challenge.  We were college room-mates, had
successful  careers and wonderful families.  Hope you enjoyed our journey from
January 3, 1985 to December 28, 2012.
THANK YOU    Ann and Zoey

Sad for the journey to end but I am so excited that I actually completed the full challenge.
While it was not always been easy, it is the idea that I started it and wanted to finish it.  It has made me realize that I am really a scrapbooker and not an artist.  I love doing new techniques but I love
paper and glue.  It has been interesting learn facts about these countries.  There are a few I would love to see myself and not through the eyes of my characters.

Here is a picture of my completed 2012 Postcard  Challenge Book, it is absolutely full. I could have used a few more pockets.

THANK YOU DARCY...........fabulous challenge.  I am ready for the book challenge.


While the holidays are exciting and I love having the family together, it is always nice to unwind after all of the food and get-together are over.  We had a very nice Christmas with kids, grand kids and family.  Then had another get-together with in-laws and then had kids fly in Christmas night for a few days stay and enjoying their company all with a snow storm.  So they are able to do a little sled riding while they are home.

I got a wonderful gift my my granddaughter, Victoria.  She made me a beautiful wall hanging names of all of the grand kids:

 I absolutely love this gift.  Thank you Victoria, I love it.

Postcard #51 - Greenland

This week finds us in Greenland.  I know nothing about Greenland.  I checked out one of my map books to check out the location.  I did an online check and liked the looks of the flag.  So I combined the flag and map for this postcard.

Postcard #50 Hawaii

Thank you Darcy for giving us the rest of the destinations ahead of time.  Time saving for me and greatly appreciated.

This week finds us in Hawaii....have never been there but would love to go.  Checking out my travel books and found a great picture, did a title and inked edges.  (I feel as though my cards are getting skimpy but with Holidays and silly us took a week of vacation in December, I am just happy to keep up.)
