Eurocycling, and winner

The winner of my 400th post giveaway is....

###Crafty Carol###

Congratulations - the stamps are on their way. Thank you to everyone for their encouraging comments.

----------------------------------------------


The Created byHand challenge is to include the word 'dream' on your work, which I have incorporated into one of the 3 transport 4x4 pages for a challenge on Lots to Do forum.

I wanted to choose a more unusual form of transport, but create the feel of a journey. There's something rather exotic and elegant about a penny farthing.

I had a ball with all my sprays, and still have clean hands, for once!!---

That penny Farthing reminds me of when I was coming home from work earlier this year, I looked out the window of the bus (top deck) and a guy was almost face to face with me with a weird hat on, he was sitting more on a uni-bike than a penny farthing but he gave me such a lovely smile when he saw the shock on my face it really was a lovely moment as he went off on his way to wherever. It was so unexpected and brought such a smile after a horrible day at work. It was very much like you think you have had a hard day ... look at me! Great memory.x

I must also thank you for the stamps they are fab, I have all sorts of ideas for them.

Thank you xxx
