I chose to design an art envelope for my sample picture. The image of the lady is from Wikimedia Commons (copyright free). The balloons are from Createwing Designs and the background and leaves from After Five Designs. The old Australian stamp was Googled. Two shillings and sixpence!! We have had decimal currency for almost 50 years. Apologies to my English friends for playing around with place names and addresses. I never cease to be fascinated with the quaint names of villages and towns in the UK.

The image used is from the late Suzee Que at Flickr (coloured). The background and blue overlay is by me. Digital stamps by Vera Lim.
This is a very old song originally sung (I believe) by the great Billie Holliday, later by Ella Fitzgerald and kept alive by Bette Midler and even Cher. I think there must be hundreds of versions of it.

The wonderful image of a farmer from another time is from Wikimedia Commons (copyright free). The news clip is from a free newspaper headline generator (recoloured). Other bits and pieces from Createwings Designs and Catherine Designs, both at After Five Designs.
Please accept my apologies for not keeping up with my comments recently. I have been very busy helping two daughters and their children due to illnesses (none serious - just inconvenient). Hopefully things will be back to normal very soon.
