I definitely do heart New York - and Lesley has captured this so beautifully in the latest postcard in our Postman's Knock swap. The felted lovely above was just one of the wonderful interpretations she produced - she always has a head so full of ideas that she can never rein in her generosity and produce just one thing.
I think this concertina card is just magical. The faded vintage pictures of the skyline are so evocative and have just the right kind of nostalgia attached to them. And so cleverly presented through the lens and viewfinder of an old camera. Brilliant!
Look at all the layers of skyscrapers and landmarks that Lesley has incorporated into this 3D card.
And a well-travelled leather suitcase covered in fancy New York hotel stickers -
isn't it great?
And this is the card I made for Joanna, whose theme was 'Collections/Collecting'. I collaged a magpie out of scraps of paper from my Toast House & Home catalogue and made a shredded paper nest to fill with the magpie's collection of glittery things. I rather like the postcard I found to put it on and even discovered I had a magpie postage stamp.
OK - got to go and pack my bag for Spain - see you all in a few days!
