Challenge 59 Out of a Hat

Hello Everyone and welcome to Jumbled Crafts for the weekly project posting for the Out of a Hat Challenge.

 This week the challenge is to make a Postcard from France. I see lots of wonderful postcards made by other crafters but I must admit I find them difficult to make and this week I had to resort to some digital work in Paint Shop Pro to help me along the way. I do enjoy dabbling in PSP anyway so it definitely wasn't a chore :)



The background is 2 fused images of different french lifestyles-Paris and a small village. I stamped in the Fleur de Lis and stuck on images I found online. That's about really.


'Nothing is real but dreams and love', from Le Coeur innombrable, IV, Chanson du temps opportun by Anna de Noailles. -this is the quote translated.


Hope to some of you will join in and show what you can make.

Do visit Von, Janet and Sandra and see their makes as well.

Love Chrissie xx

This is terrific, Chrissie. I have to admit I thought the postcard would be easy but found myself struggling to come up with something I liked. Harder than I thought. Hope you're enjoying your trip! Hugs, Tracy
