Being the Outdoors Type

Hi there, me back again - twice today!

I'm not sure but I have a feeling the cut-off for
may be Friday rather than Saturday, and since it's Friday afternoon .......

The theme this week is "Photographs" so I had a poke around my stash and found a little pad of Miniatures 'People & Places 2' by Crafty Individuals.  This girl caught my eye so I cut just inside the border and lightly inked the edges with 'black soot' Distress Ink.

The background is paper I found recently from Prima 'Royal Menagerie' collection called 'Bicycle Built for Two' which has a lovely hand made look (but isn't really).

This was also inked around the edges with 'black soot' Distress Ink.  The words are from Tim Holtz and the stamp on the bottom right corner is from Darkroom Door 'Mail Out'.

I love the softness of this postcard and with the background done for me, I put it together in no time at all.

Sunday Postcard Art - "Photographs"

Happy Crafting!


  1. Thank you for your lovely postcard!

  2. Helen, this is just lovely! I, too, love the softness of it all--color, elements, design--and just a touch of humor! This looks like a winner to me! And, yes, you made it!!

  3. Helen, I'm so glad your postcard was chosen as a favorite or I might have missed seeing it. I love this postcard creation! Whaaa?!...she lied about being the outdoorsy type?!...NO! LoL. I love the humor and the beauty of your card!

  4. Good thing you did it when you did, you made the sampler. Lovely and the text you added was funny. xoxo
