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!

Is this a true story? Or am I being dumb?
I just bought some postcards in a charity shop and I'm going to use them to make a diary I saw in Mollie Makes magazine.
I love reading them and imagining the people involved.
Yes, I'm nosey

Awesome beginning. What on earth is in that purse?
I googled a picture of edelweiss for my card and then sang that song (and all the others from Sound of Music) all week long!
