Hi everybody. Another week has fled by, and I have just managed to get my postcard finished on time! Two *parties* at the same time, that's great - Paint Party Friday no. 45, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin, and Darcy's Postcard Challenge, Week no. 3, where our destination this week is Brazil....
Auntie Cissie’s best friend Thelma – well, one of her best friends – had planned a trip to Brazil. Unfortunately, she slipped over on a banana skin while leaving her favourite bakery in Whitechapel, so Cissie bought the ticket off her for a good price, packed her case, and got ready to fly. She was not completely convinced that a land so far away would be suitable to guarantee her enough food, and was rather worried about all the foreigners living there. Jason told her gently on the phone, *Don’t worry, dear; they are all very hospitable, and when you go there, you will be the foreigner*. Auntie Cissie told him, *Don’t be silly, Jason. I’M BRITISH! British are NOT foreigners!* Jason decided not to argue further, and gave Cissie a large box of chocolates to eat on the plane in case she got hungry. As she rather tearfully waved goodbye, she called out, *I will probably look like a skeleton when I come back*. Jason just waved, while thinking to himself, *Not bloody likely!* And then he drove back home thinking about which of his girl friends to ask over for the evening.
Aunt Cissie is very relieved to find that the food is wonderful, that there are huge portions, and that she will not starve there….. She is also pleasantly surprised that her bikini causes such a stir on the beach, and enjoys the winks and sly smiles of the men and the astonished stares of the ladies, which she takes for envious looks. She FEELS good, and that’s all that matters to her! Here is her postcard sent to Jason. Auntie Cissie has had her photograph taken in front of a sparkly Brazilian flag, and sporting her new bikini. As fate would have it, the Brazilian post issued a special stamp with cup-cakes on it, probably in honour of Auntie Cissie.
The postcard has been painted with acrylics onto water-colour paper, and glittered with stickles. I haven't decorated the album page yet, but hope to get it done for tomorrrow!
I have also managed to finish my WIP from earlier in the week.
I am really looking forward to the weekend, as we have no treatments then, can sleep longer and paint more!! I am really knocked out just now!
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for dropping in!
