For today's postcard challenge, I went digging through my drawer of treasures to see if I had any actual postcards hanging around. I don't. But I did find this photo that came from my Gram's house. It was taken on vacation in Jost Van Dyke and sure would make a great postcard. So I cut it down to fit on this postage stamp die. Then I decided my postcard needed some postage. I save the stamp off of almost every envelope that comes my way, so I used a bunch of them to frame the photo. This was quick and fun this morning! Thanks for a great challenge, Jayne!

Wonderfully done, and so imaginative with the postage stamps for the frame. I'm going to keep that idea in mind. I take part in a European postal survey and have a ton of stamps I save. Last year I was one of the winners in a postcard competition run by the company who do the survey - I collaged a bunch of stamps and die-cut letters from it to spell the survey name. But that was very narrowly specific to the competition, a frame is a genius idea.
