Good morning lovely ladies,
How are you all? Today is Friday and I'd like to share some postcards, some paper crafting and some funnies with you. (All of which have made me smile. What about you?)
First off is a postcard from Japan which I really liked. A cute girl swimming among the koi in a kimono. Michiko sent it me. She lives in Tokyo.She has used some nice stamps and has put washi tape all around the card.
The top stamp celebrates the 15th International Puppet Festival in 1988.
The second card comes from Russia. I have no information about the artist, but I do like this image in the style of the old pin-ups.
The stamps are gorgeous and big. The one on the left with the horses is about native horse breeds. This breed being the Vladimir breed.
The middle stamp is a joint issue Thailand/Russia and features state rulers. The right hand stamp is from a series about railway uniforms.
My week has been very routine. Nothing out of the ordinary. Yesterday being Thursday, I spent the day in my craft room. This time I made some cards. I had received a card that was folded in a certain way. I copied the idea and made three cards of the same design.
Then in the afternoon I made a scrapbook double page on Kraft paper.
It is about Juan, one of our friends, who is a professional artist. Our daughter Tracey had celebrated her birthday a short while before coming to Spain to visit us. So we celebrated her birthday again. Our friends clubbed together and paid Juan to create a caricature of Tracey as a birthday present to her. She was delighted with the result.
I have some funnies too for you as usual. You'll find them at the end.
Wishing everyone a lovely weekend,
