Brazil Week 3 of Darcy's postcard Challenge

This is my postcard for week three of Darcy's postcard challenge. And it was a challenge this week as I didn't know what I could do for the postcard, so I decided to use the flag colours and the famous carnival< I sat and crocheted the flowers and thought what I could do while I was crocheting and I came up with the idea of a mask and lots of bling!

The back of the postcard,


Dear Penny,
Let's meet and reunite you with this ring. I'm in Brazil at the moment but will have a stop over in London on Wed 1st Feb 2012. Meet me at the bar in Claridges Hotel at 8pm, there will be a cocktail waiting for you at the bar - I will be in my uniform. By the way 'Im intrigued, you say it's no longer yours, I imagine a girl doesn't easily give up a diamond this big!

I hope you like it and thank you all again for all of the lovely comments, I am loving this challenge so much, why didn't they do something like this at school so I enjoyed geography?

I am so looking forward to the next country.
until next time.

Postcard Challenge week 2 - Spain

Yay!! week 2 of Darcy's Postcard challenge has arrived!
The country for this week is Spain. I chose Madrid as this is the fashion capital of Spain and it fits so well with my story, I decorated my postcard with Tim Holtz sewing room die and Tag and bookplates. I added some thread, a wooden button, pearls, lace and brads and glossy accents crackle. I also printed an old map from google images and used this for the background. 

And on the back of the card I made a template on the PC added the word postcard in Spanish ( I hope it's right :0/ ) I also added an old Spanish stamp I found in my stash.

The postcard reads:

Dear Captain Spencer Everett,
Thank goodness you found my purse.You see the item inside no longer mine and I need to return it A.S.A.P. We need to meet but it seems we are both regular travellers. I am a fashion designer and am often overseas, as you'll see from the card i am in Madrid at the moment.If you you would please let me know when you are next in London I will arrange to pick up the purse.
Yours Gratefully,

I hope you are enjoying the story so far?
I am really enjoying the challenge and already looking forward to Monday to find out the next Country.
Also taking part in the challenge are my lovely close friends:

Thanks for all of your lovely comments and welcome to all of my new followers.
Until next time,

Week 1 - Austria

Here is my first postcard for Darcy's postcard challenge I used the sound of music for decorating my postcard and I am quite chuffed with it.

It is sent from Austria by a pilot named Captain Spencer Everitt to a Lady called Penelope Chalmers.
I also printed the back of the postcard and printed a stamp all from google images.

Inside the postcard reads-
Dear Penelope, I hope you enjoyed your flight on Jumping Jet airlines. I was your pilot Spencer. I found your purse on the plane witht your address inside I would like to meet youy to return it. you will know from wht's inside why I san't post it to you. I'm in Austria now but write to me in London and let me know where we can get together.
Captain Spencer Everitt

Story to be continued........

I also have pictures of my characters which I haven't quite finised yet but will post these at a later date, I also still need to make some kind of storage for the postcard.

I hope you will pop back to see part 2 this is so much more fun than I imagined!

Good morning all!
this is just a short post today to let you know that this year I have committed myself to two challenges:-

Postcard Challenge 2012 which you can find all of the details here on Darcy Wilkinson's blog


The 366 Calendar challenge which you can find here on Kate Crane's blog.

I am joining the challenges with my friends Tracey, Anita and Margaret which will hopefully encourage us to keep up with the challenges;0), although I'm not doing very well at the minute and haven't started but to having the cold bug that everyone seems to have at the moment.
I have lots of ideas whizzing around my head though.

So pop back between Fri and Mon to hopefully see my first postcard and the theme for this is Austria.

Thanks for reading,
