Postcard Challenge 2012

Well...what can I say, but a huge Thankyou!!! I had no idea this challenge would capture the imagination of so many.

This first week, our adventures took us to Austria, and as I type this 57 of you have made cards and linked up. I have had so much fun looking at all the art work and reading the first installments of your stories. There is a lot of mystery and intrigue out there, with a little romance thrown in.

We have had meetings on station platforms, and addresses left in books and brochures, people writing to relatives and strangers falling in love, circus acts and homesick doggies, a possible murder? and even some fairies....WOW!

Here is a short video from Kerri, showing you how she made her book and her first card..

So as promised here is a little giveaway of some postage stamps, i can't remember exactly how many I put in the packets, around 20 i think, also a couple of airmail stickers and some clear photo corners for you to try out.

This is a screenshot of all the names that took part this week.

First winner.  Esther.

Second winner. Craftywomble

Third winner.  Gina.
