I am away for a while and will be back 2 June :)

A quick card made this afternoon.
We met Peter and Kathy while on holiday in the Algarve in 2003. Peter used to be a postman and when I found this image I thought it is perfect for his card this year.

Hi Irene
I love the vintage look of this card. I did send off for the 'postcard' stamp and it has arrived but I haven't had time to play yet.
