Here are a few of my recent cards.

Jolee from The Octopode Factory...

Stuart the Giraffe, also from The Octopode Factory - love the words which come with him!

I've just discovered Dillybeans - fab images!

That's it for the minute - short but sweet ;)

Hopefully I can show a few more postcards this weekend and I'm hoping to finish my March calendar page too...we'll see!

Also - if you're wanting to get a head start on your Christmas cards then check out Catherine's Christmas blog. She's running a Christmas card swap in April - you send off four identical cards and get four different cards in return for your Christmas box - a fab idea!

Postcard Challenge - Switzerland

Yes, I'm behind again in Darcy's Postcard Challenge - I blame Switzerland! I could NOT decide what to do for my postcard...I really didn't want to do mountains! Hubby pointed out that CERN is in Switzerland and said to Google image LHC collisions. Lots of pretty pictures turned up and I decided that's what I was doing, but, I just wasn't feeling it.
So...then I Googled Swiss artists and who did I find? HR Giger. I LOVE the Alien films so knew this had to be the right path. However, not being an amazing artist I couldn't draw the image I wanted (here) though I did went with an Alien silhouette instead. Now, just to catch up with the next three countries!
