SUNDAY POSTCARD - PARTY - CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR FIRST YEAR


While we are celebrating Sunday Postcard's first birthday, spare a thought for my great-aunts. Ada and Elsie were non-identical twins (except for their short-sightedness) who lived in hope of joining the "in-crowd". Sadly, because of their prim, proper and spinsterly appearance, they were never invited to parties and languished on the vine, so to speak.
Photo of Ada and Elsie a very scratchy old but interesting sepia from Flick free images - greatly enhanced and coloured. Curtains and balloons from New Life Designs.

  3. I just began my day with a smile thanks to your humor, Marie! I adore the "sisters". Poor little wallflowers - maybe it was their glasses that put off the suitors! Hugs, Terri xoxo

  20. Marie, thanks for your comments!!! :O)

    I don't know how to use exactly the Art Rage... I can't draw anything... I only use to make backgrounds with some texture! :O/ But I would like to know if there is a place that teaches the coloring technique, like I see here and, for example, at http://pringlehill-terri.blogspot.com/2009/05/happy-birthday-to-sunday-postcard-art.html I love it, but I don't have any idea how to do it! Can you help, Marie?

    Have a wonderful Sunday!!!
