Magpie Day - We have postcards!

It's our last post for this month and it's a Magpie Day!

Q: What is a Magpie Day?
A: Whatever takes our fancy!

We've introduced Magpie Days for the occasional spare date in our calendar. Our DTMs suggest a topic and play with that theme. Today we thought it would be fun to feature POSTCARDS!

Here's what our talented team came up with...



My postcard is called 'A postcard from Paris' and makes use of Tim's new French flight Framelits dies with stamps. There's a kewl map of Liege cut from one of the new 'Come away with me' papers from Graphic 45 too. On the serious side, the postcard journey starts in Liege (Belgium) and ends in Paris and is commemorative of the centenary of WWI. You can find exactly what's been used and how HERE.

Hello, I have made a vintage postcard  from a wife to her husband who is away at war.
More details from my blog here. xxx

My Postcard is from the North Pole, posted by Santa to a child that has been very good all year.

A step by step is over on my Blog.

 and here is the back :
I love all things vintage and love playing with the new papers, so this vintage style postcard from Paris was created using mostly collaged elements x For all the details please hop here .

Making a postcard means I can get out one of my first ever stamp purchases... the Tim Holtz PostCard label.  It's still one of my favourites - I don't know why I don't use it more!  For more details of my melancholy message, take a trip over to Words and Pictures.

My son starts Secondary school in September and so my postcard is themed with him in mind! Lots of my most favourite Wendy Vecchi stamps were used - in fact I think there are 23 stamped images in total! For more on how I made this, please pop over to my blog!

Jennie
I rather indulged myself with an old favourite stamp which I hadn't used in a while to create this vintage postcard.  There are more details on my blog here.



We hope you've enjoyed peeking at our postcards. If you have some time, do please hop around to see the details and share some love with the DT Members who work SO hard to create our projects for you to see.

We'll be back on Monday with a brand new challenge for you and more lovely projects to share from our team.

Thanks to you all for your support and all the lovely comments this month, have a fabulous weekend!

Chris and the team. xxx
