lol I laughed at your comment about them not being all traditional after this one - you have me intrigued before I even read the back of the card, cant wait to see what unfolds in Spain xxx

debbi taylor said...

Am liking the start to this story already! x

Dee said...

Love your element of intrigue - looking forward to the next instalment.

iamrushmore said...

great intro - it already has me wondering.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I see you have also been bitten by the Darcy Postcard challenge! I considered it this morning when I started visiting blog friends, then realized I might have to actually DRAW something. Glad to see you found an alternative way to do this. This story sounds like fun.

Thanks for stopping by so often when I was offline. It meant a lot to me, even though I couldn't reciprocate.

I wanted to comment about your lack of fabric. I often use old bed sheets because they are as good as, or possibly better than muslin. They dye perfectly and you don't have to go through all the pre-washing of fabric that has never been used before. I look forward to reading about your dyeing adventures, too. BTW, happy belated New Year.

Jackie Humphreys said...

Very interesting, looking forward to the next part.....

Jen said...

Late joining in so playing catch up, very interesting start wonder how this will go on....

Rosemary said...

What an intriguing first postcard for this story...I think it is rather cool to have a traditional card to start with as it lends itself to what seems normal but then...what will happen next!?! Very cool!
