(Looks much better when enlarged!)
This picture is one taken of my aunt, age 12. She was orphaned at two and her life was not an easy one. I imagine that she shed lots of "secret tears" because her sadness showed on her face.
The background is by Berna Datema and the paper flowers by Birgit Kerr. The quote is by Antoine Saint-Exupery (from "The Little Prince")

Thanks to the "Postcard Ladies" for inviting me to host this week's Sunday Postcard.
The image is from a collage sheet by Maya at Scrapbookgraphics. The background, fish and bubbles are by Lorie Davison also of SBG. I have coloured the black and white image and added some glittery overpainting (in ArtRage painting).

Thanks for the great challenge. The image has been on my computer for years and I am not sure where I got it from. The curtain is by Fiddlette of Scrapartist and the background by Madame Mim of Catscraps.
I dedicate this picture to all post-menopausal women!

The two images in my picture are from Flickr free and the background is by Madame Mim.
The quote is from an old Irish saying. I love old Irish sayings as my heritage is 100% Irish and the old people really did come up with such pearls of wisdom - some which didn't make a lick of sense and some that were funny and had a ring of truth.
