DCM - Remembrance Postcard



Okay, so on going back and reading the challenge again "I want you to design a post card - and whats more I want you to actually post it! Aren't I mean ?" , I realise that this is probably not what was asked for! However, hearing the word postcard got me all excited as I have a few very old embroidered postcards. I think this one is from WW1 and came from my DH's family, I've been looking for a reason to use them on a card for ages and this just seemed like too good a chance.

  4. Lovely Janice.

    I had a tin of old cards including embroidered ones that my Grandma gave me when I was very little, somewhere, probably through housemoves they've got lost and I feel very sad about that.
