Wednesday. Getting on a Jet plane...


Hello and Goodbye!
Thanks for popping in.
We’re off to celebrate my son Mark’s graduation 
in San Francisco this weekend,


but I promise to blog every day, with a bit of this and a bit of that!

In fact, every day, I think we’ll have a little 
Graduation Celebration,
with a Giveaway or a Silly Sale....

The here project is quite fitting.
Just showcasing our very clever Postcard Kit.

You can make your personal Postcards with this set.
Any picture any place!

Here we are, at Heathrow, going undercover.
Not sure if the hat will fit in the overhead compartment.
Was a nightmare going through the X-ray Scanner;
told him to leave his epaulettes at home!
And what with my bling, we nearly missed the jolly plane!


Stamp the 3 part Postcard kit onto a piece of our 
A6 Claritycard - the coated card. 
Use Archival Black 
(in case the Postman gets caught in the rain!)


I would suggest you do all this BEFORE you attach it to 
a sheet of of double-sided adhesive tape.



Then you just have to decided who to send it to...


I used:
£19.99 £15.99

Love & greetings from America!

  5. Hello Barbara,

    Love the hat! Enjoy Marks graduation. I know what it is like to have a son living on the other side of the world. My youngest son leaves today to return to Japan where he has lived for the past six years. He has been home for a fortnight to attend his sister-in-law's funeral. A very sad occasion for us all.

    Love,
    Rosalind x

  28. Enjoy your time with Mark. Will Grace be joining you? I know you miss your children so much. I moved away from my parents, but I am only 30 miles away, but still feel guilty that I only see them once a week. I can't imagine what it must be like, having your family so far away, especially as you are all so close. Still modern technology is a great way to keep in touch.
    Love the card, and for once I have all the ingredients !!
