Here is the first postcard I have made. It was for the January swap on UK Stampers, on the theme of "Numbers".
For anyone who isn't old enough to recognise the quote against number 42, it comes from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams

The challenge was to make a hanging out of material from old clothes, metal, tissue and stamps. We were supposed to use old stash only, nothing new.
I made the background out of an old tee-shirt stuck onto some left-over card from an old pad, the fish out of a tomato-paste tube and the lid from a can of octopus, the sand out of inked, stamped and scrunched tissue and a scrap of card, the bubbles out of Glossy Accents, and the weeds out of the packaging from last Christmas's pudding. The jump rings and chain have been in my stash for ages. The only new thing I used was my Cropadile, for punching the holes.
