Wish You Were Here

You really would love being here today as we have lots of sunshine even though it is still a bit chilly. My daughter and son-in-law arrive this afternoon until Tuesday so I may not be around very much until they go back home.

The challenge at the Craft Room this time is to make a 'Wish You Were Here' postcard. Postcards are never my forte for sure but I quite like this one. This is mainly because I got to search through lots of folder of photographs we had taken in model villages all over the place. I love model villages-maybe it because I am only 5 feet high and they make me feel taller lol.


I stencilled the background with a mixture of Distressed Stains. Then I added the photograph which was taken in Great Yarmouth model village. Then, a few bits and bobs to it and a post card back. It was great to be able to go outside to take the photograph and to show off my grand collection of forget-me-nots.

Have a good day all

Love Chrissie xx

Your stencilled background looks fab Chrissie. I have very vivid memories of visiting the model village at Bourton on the Water when I was a child. Xx

Great card, Chrissie - as a fellow fan of model villages, it really appeals to me just for that picture, and then there's the yummy background too. Hope you have a wonderful time with your family - and that the sunshine continues for you.

I love everything about this blog post, Chrissie. I love your postcard, the flowers in the background and that you love model villages because you're only five foot. (I would tower an inch and a bit above you!) Great to start the day with a smile. Marina
