let's lick this thing (SCS, PDCC)


That, friends, is a shot of my Master Tracking List for the Splitcoast Hope You Can Cling To month of challenges.  Whew.  I made it.  The last card of my HYCCT marathon was for #1225A - Let's lick this thing.  As in cancer.  And as in postage stamps.

Well two years ago in an oh-so-cool gallery of shops next to the Hard Rock Cafe in Paris, I found a shop selling old postcards and stamps.  Don't know if they were lost in the mail or cleaned out of someone's attic, but I love that there is so much personality/history to them, even if I don't know the story behind it.  I like that I can make the story live on, in a way, by using the piece.


I merely added some Glimmer Mist spritzing, a hodge podge of embellies, washi and a brad before adhering the postcard to my cardbase.


Playing with The Play Date Cafe's #156 spicy color challenge:

Ha ha, I will have to show this to hubby to prove I'm not the only one using spreadsheets to track my challenges, LOL!
As for the cards, I LOVE the nostalgia if using old postcards, I think I will search eBay for some. Thanks for the chuckle and inspiration.
