Brr ICELAND


is the destination of this week’s traveling postcard chronicle. If you have not heard of this fun challenge LISTEN UP it is brought to us by the Lovely Darcy of the cool Art & Sole blog. We (us’in travelers) design / decorate / art even a Postcard that represents the Country of the Week. We then create (continue) a story between two peoples*, who may or may not already know each other. *they are not always “people” could be kritters or other beings. Not all the postcards travel by way of a human Postal Carrier either.  You may join in the challenge at any time ~ new country is up on Mondays and link up day is on Fridays over at Art &Sole. Oh and at the beginning of a new month she and a sweet neighbor pick a Short list of favorite postcards AND then they choose some cards for the participants to vote for their favorite…but YOU must be a participant to vote.

And now on with the card’age

From Allen to Liz: drawn with graphite colored with Prisma pencils, Acrylic paints


and it reads

Dear Liz,

I think if you love anything it must be good.  My coffee maker, Chloe, is a great girl she likes trying new things and sometimes sharing that excitement with me. We spend spring break together, so the rest of my vacation time is free. I think it would be a nice change to visit another county this year and it would be really great to meet you. I have been curious about the real you after hearing some of your Aunt’s stories.

                     Your friend
Allen



So there we have it Allen says he will met Liz…wonder when and where

Happy Art’in y’all
