If I had the computer skills that some of you have, this would have been easier and quicker to make. For those of you with my limited computer skills, here is a short description of how to turn any image into a post card. I found 3 digi images...not post cards..that I liked and printed them in the size I wanted. There are a lot of blank post card type images on the internet, so I printed one that had the square, circle and 3 address lines and also made it the right size. I put the postcard image in the printer and printed it to see where it landed on the page. I cut out the tent scene, placed it overlapping the postcard image and ran that page through the printer...the post card image printed over it. This gave me a master copy which I then printed, added the rectangle, stamped a image of a postage stamp in the square and colored. I used one of my stamps with script writing, made a little masked area where the address lines are, and stamped the writing. I did that with each of the 3 images. I always save the master copies in case I want to make a future card with them. The map bg is a stamp that I resized and colored. TFL, Francie

Your boys must have the most amazing collection of cards Francie. I love all the heart and art you put into every single creation. Your colouring and layouts blow me away. Love the sentiment and that's exactly what I plan on doing! xx

OMG this is totally AMAZING!! I love the idea of using postcards to illustrate his life. The bright colors, your signature, just make this whole thing POP. I'm blown away by this...and Brad will most certainly be! LOVE it!
