OK OK---so I get excited about new things! I have never done a transfer before and I did one from a picture of an oriental rug in a magazine. It turned out just fine and I used it on this card! Liked doing this one>>>it was just plain fun! *L*O*V*E*

Oh, it was gorgeous in Duthie today! Snowy and cold outside, but warm and toasty inside. I went for my usual cup of tea and got a bowl of stovie with oatcakes and beetroot along with it. It just looked so good.
Elizabeth and I wandered around the winter gardens for awhile, settling in the Arid cactus hall, where I took a few pictures. We then moved on to one of our favorite flower spots and drew away!

Finally got some stamps to use on #5. Took me awhile to decide what to use and then I just didn't get any mail! So, I searched through old envelopes, etc. and came up with some fun stuff! I love mail, stamps, post boxes, cute postmen, ect. (Had a wonderful time at the National Postal Museum in DC). This card was patched up a few times with masking tape---I kept smearing the writing! Tried to pull it all together with a light coat of green acrylic paint. It is fun to just experiment without any true goal in sight!
