Post Card from Paris

Hiya Everyone
My daughter is off to Paris with her university at the end of the week and I said not to forget to send us a post card. It got me thinking, does anyone actually do that any more?
I used to get writers cramp, writing to everyone when I was younger, but now with modern technology, I don't think anyone does that anymore.
Therefore I dedicate this card, to the long lost tradition of writing post cards he he!

I coloured both Tildas from the we did it collection, with copics. I used my post card stamp at the top and added a couple of post marks.
The cute paper clip is from Craft Heaven shop and so are the chipboard circles peeking out at the corners of the image.

I made my own hand made pin and added a selection of flowers and berries from a variety of craft shops. The lovely pearls are from my friend Jules, who very kindly sent them to me.
Its almost the weekend, have a good one.
