2015-03-06; Post card swap

2015/03/06

Its a post card swap! I cut up one of the green file folders into a piece that measures 4″x6″. It is sturdy enough to be mailed just as is.

I added some gesso; then dipped in distress inks, stamped, covered with watermark ink and embossed in clear. The clear coat gives it a nice texture and will protect the colors from being rubbed off during handling.

The sentiment is by my Heart Stamps for You and was purchased at one of my very first conventions. I miss going to conventions!

The image of the girl is by Stamp Land. I bought this at a rummage sale quite a few years ago. The little girl is such a beautiful child…wish I had occasion to use this image more often.

I thought the sentiment appropriate as I’ve been on a diet and exercising for nearly a year. By gum, it is a truism if ever I saw one.

    She is adorable, Bonnie! What a great postcard, and so true. Good for you for your diet and exercise for a year. I hope it’s working for you!

      The diet? Yes and no. Yes in that I lost 70 pounds (yup a former huge girl). And no as over the holidays I gained13 back and seriously can’t get it back off. Talk about being attached at the hip! LOL.
