Claim to Fame 2

Just for Elizabethd !! I'd forgotten about the photos, but this is the postcard I 'practiced' on




Don't know what happened to that, think it must have gone to another swap! This is the one I sent - Indian Summer

The colours of the silks were brighter in real life and the gold threads really sparkled ! I enjoyed my FPC swaps , but the postage kept on getting more expensive, and as I had to 'import' a lot of the materials also, it meant a double increase! The other reason I had for stopping was - what do I do with them all ?? I received some lovely cards over the months, and it seems such a shame that they are all now neatly stored in boxes - except for my Christmas cards, they come out each year !

My photos don't enlarge as I edit them, having once read on someone's blog (can't remember who sorry !) that by doing so it helps to reduce the amount of 'space' used by Blogger - I don't know if this is true or not, but it's worth a try!! More importantly, it gets rid of the sometimes 'messy' background - particularly on those taken in my sewing room :-)

You do such nice work! I agree with you though...I have been invited over the years to do postcard swaps, but I didn't know what I would do with all the ones I received!
