Oo La La France


Yes that’s right the weekly Postcard Challenge brought to us by Darcy of Art & Sole took us to France. I know I have heard the rumor that ‘in France they don’t wear underpants’… but I don’t know how true that is … Do you???

Okay so my first attempt didn’t work so well – The Can Can dancer was hideous! So lucky for me my funny bone spoke up and the following is the result; so what if it took me 3 backgrounds before I got one I was happy with.

Mixed media – tissue paper background, gold acrylic paint (can), silver tape (can) both stamped with the Eiffel Tower (which also represents the Letter “A”), stamped the other words as well & the legs were printed from online & then fussy cut out.


 From Liz to Allen – France

Dear Allen,

Thank you but you must keep the gift from Dear Aunt Nan. I am really missing her this evening – the wine has drowned – lol is that a real word – my sorrows. Can you believe I found this funny card in a “Conjointe de la biere”
Yea for translation book
                        All my best Liz


Now that you have seen mine go look at everyone else’s.

Love it! Brilliant postcard!
As for not wear undies I am not sure either but when I went in the 70's I was shocked to find in a newly built public loo it was just a room with a hole! so maybe it is true, it would be easier!
