Collecting the mail.


'A Childs Life is '...............is our next  challenge  theme  over at Sugar Creek Hollow.
Please pop over and see what we have all been making and get all the details.
This charming image is from our sponsor for this challenge 'A Day for Daisies.
I can just image  this little girl collecting the post  after the postman called.
The image was added to a backing which framed it,  using a  computer program before I printed it out.
 I chose water colours for the image.
The postcards are an Inkadinkado stamp with the trusty script stamp and shaded with Vintage Photo distress ink. All the paper layers I have had for some time and the additions came from my stash..

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.
