Thursday and even more grunge....

Hi everybody. We had a cold and frosty day here yesterday, and when I set off to go to the doc's it bucketed down hail stones. It was so loud I thought they would come through the roof of the car! In south Germany they even had snow! But the weather-men have promised better weather from today on; i sure hope they are right!

The five postcards here are the ones I made for the swap on Inspiration Avenue, they must have reached their destinations by now.







I showed the *backsides* last week already. I have had a lot of fun messing around with ephemera and mod-podge and ink this past couple of weeks, I think I will be soon doing some more.... I am linking to *Simon Says Stamp and Show* where anything goes this week.

Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for looking in!
