Post card

You've got mail!  A post card from adventures near and far.  I have always been an avid reader so when Inkido came up with this mood board about books and rich neutral colors I had to join in on the fun.  In today's world it is all about tweets and short clips for reading so I choose to focus on short stories like a post card.
 My journaling is on the back and talks about what a fabulous birthday I had.  Normally my birthdays are sad.  But this year my hubby decided to plan a day trip that I have been wanting to do for six years!  He took me on an old fashion train ride from Grapevine, TX to the stock yards in Ft. Worth, TX.  It was an awesome day.  Once Upon A Sketch challenge "The best things in life aren't things" was so apropos to my  trip.  

Thank you for stopping by to see what the papers are saying today!
