Where I Live Swap

I am participating in 52 Weeks over at The Creative Underground. We had a recent challenge to get TWO postcards showing "where you live", take one of the post cards and "art" it up and then post to one of the other 52 Weeks members. So here is what I came up with...
 My postcard and my inspiration (1954 ad from Better Home and Garden) - I know, my peeps would not be surprised.
It actually came out pretty cool - paint, stamping, collaging etc. Although I treated the shiny surface of the postcard I am keeping my fingers everything stays stuck.
But I also had to do an envelope to send them in - here is the back!
And the front!! I do apologize for the quality of the photos - my own computer is once again at Best Buy getting "fixed" so I am making do with alternate ways to get things posted...Enjoy. Jewels


  1. Actually the pics look fine, at least from my seat. Great postcards and envies. I love her head bandeau and big gold bangles. Totally the way I dress to garden... Very cool Jewels, as usual!
