Wednesday and more Grunge....

Hi everybody. Today I want to share two more grungy postcards that I made.



And the *backsides*


They should have been made with gel image transfers, but it was late at night, and I pasted the wrong side, so they just ended up with vintage images as they were....I think I should stop doing things that need a bit of brain when it's soooo late. But I still like them. I am entering the birdy one into the birds challenge at *Artful Times*. The quote on the rose card is from Umberto Eco's *The Name of the Rose*.

Tomorrow I will share the pics of the cards I sent off for the postcard exchange, they should have arrived at their destinations by now. I know that one has arrived, so let's hope the others have, too.

Have a good day you all. Take care, and thanks for dropping in!
