You may have read in a previous post that 12 friendly bloggers have pooled their various talents to take part in a fortnightly postcard swap, each having chosen a different theme for us all to illustrate as we wish. My theme is NEW YORK NEW YORK!, which it was Cathy's turn to illustrate.
We all posted our cards on Friday 1st April and most of the excited participants received them on Saturday. But, as I live in
the Outer Hebrides north Bedfordshire, I always have to wait a day longer than everyone else and not only that, but rarely get a delivery before 11.00 a.m. So Cathy was drumming her fingers and drinking cups of coffee this morning, anxiously waiting to hear whether I'd received her creation.
Well, it was certainly worth the wait! I absolutely love her interpretation of the theme and the yellow cab is sooo realistic, I could just jump in and whizz off into the bright lights of Manhattan right now! And that cheeky and clever old Cathy has included a hilarious extra - try this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgMEPk6fvpg.
If you click on the Postman's Knock link on the right, you can see all the fab cards that have been changing hands for our first swap. They're all wonderful and I'm so glad I'm taking part, it's such fun!
