City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #81 - Postcard and a swap

Hello... it's me Linda and I am back with this week's challenge.
I have been seeing some postcard floating around blogland lately and I thought it would be so fun to give it a try... so would you like to give it a try?
The challenge is to make a postcard that can be mailed to a friend or family, or whomever you would like. I can't wait to see what you come up with....

*Special Note*
We are doing a POSTCARD swap this week, if you are interested, please scroll to the bottom of this post to sign up for the POSTCARD swap. Or check out the information at City Crafter Party Blog

Get to know Karen......

I am, above all, grateful to God for all the beautiful blessings in my life. I have been married to my husband and best friend for over 26 years. and we have been blessed with three awesome children. I have been paper-crafting for as long as I can remember. I enjoy making cards for people and sharing my creations with others to bring a smile, or encouragement, where it can bless someone, I sincerely hope that you will all visit my little blog, and "follow" along as I share my work and and my heart. I love to visit other blogs as well to gain inspiration, so I will always "follow" others in return. I create from the heart, and hope that everyone who paper-crafts will use their creations to bless and encourage others. There are so many "bad" things in the world. So, when we are able to bring light, hope, or encouragement to others through our God-given talents, that is what we should all try to do. Thanks for putting your work out there. I gain so much inspiration from others' blog, and hope to meet many of you soon - so please stop by my blog and say hello.
