Just for fun Postcard

I made this card for a sweet friend I meat on Ebay. Yes it reminds me of that weird song from Weid Al Yankovic; I found it on eBay. She has become a friend that we swap inspiration between photos throw the phone. It's amazing how friendships can begin. 

On to the card now for this postcard I used Tilda playing hopscotch from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011, and stampin up houses from 2004 the sky background from magnolia ink and the doohickey fence from the volume 6 catalog. I also embellished with The paper Studio Spare Parts flowers and embossing powder from Hampton Art. I also used 3mm tape to provide dimension into the card.

For this side I used Penny Black Postcard stamp 1369L, a rear stampers anonymous stamp E2-514 and Catslife Press 683 stamp. The background paper that the postcard is sewn onto is from The paper studio Olivia's sweet shop.

Probably will also include some goodies I have in my stash that hopefully she can use. The girl has way more magnolia stuff then me so what do you gift a friend that has everything. It's really hard to come up with something but I'm sure I will.

Thanks for visiting my blog have a happy 4th of July.
