Sunday Postcard - Top Hat


I spent hours on my first entry...then accidentally erased it! This is my second effort, and I'm still mourning the first! Thanks for starting us off for the New Year!

  3. Your second piece is wonderful. I can't imagine what the first must have been like if you are grieving its lost! This is gorgeous.

  4. We really are Tweedledee and Tweedledum. I posted my card and had no idea it was very much like yours until Lori told me that we had selected the same image. Your card hadn't come up in my blog roll at that stage. My background was a paper one as well - newspaper!! No harm done but I decided to delete mine so as not to cause more confusion!
    Your card is wonderful, Bev. I tagged mine "Fine and Dandy" because he is such a dandy.

  7. So sorry to hear about losing your first one, could you not retrieve it from the recycle bin? Just a thought. This one is excellent and the gentleman is very dapper. Like the beckground - he looks like a Wall Street type. Great postcard, Bev. All the best for the new year. Hugs, Gayle.

  12. I've done the same thing myself on the odd occasion and erased something I shouldn't! It's so annoying!
    Bet the 'missing' one was fabulous but this is definately a very able replacement! Great job :)

  15. No use crying over lost images is there - we all do it and sometimes what comes out the second time is even better and this is absolutely fabulous Bev. I just hope that it won't ruin your Happy New Year!
