Altered Dictionary - D

The letter this fortnight at The Craft Barn is the letter D.

Oh, so many delightful words to illustrate that begin with the letter D.  But for me, the word to illustrate has to be DELIVERY.  I watch for this guy every single delivery day of the week!...to bring in and to take out.


There is a twist to the challenge this time, and that is to use pink.  The twists always scare me that they might not work into my style.  But, so far, so good.


Now I must go and make more mail.

Mr. Zip! This one is so clever with the stamp and the address! The pink is a great touch...who'd a thunk? It really gives an eye-catching detail.

Clever idea to chose a dictionary. A whole page of D`s. Love the drawing, he looks in a hurry to deliver to you.

"Delivery"! What a difficult word to choose, but your delivery man is just perfect, such a sweet delivery man looking so pleased that he has some mail for you. Fun to deliver to you at the dictionary.
I know what you mean about the twist, you've thought of and made the perfect painting for the theme, and then you have to include a purple elephant or whatever. Quite terrifying. But I like the way you've made a pink label, I don't think Mr. Mailman would like wearing pink.

Your delivery guy is so cute. I remember him! The second I saw it, I knew your word. Good job on a difficult word.

Mail delivery is great fun when there is artistic mail involved. The touch of pink is just right. I always enjoy your dictionary alterations. Wonderful Weekend Dear...

I haven't seen Mr. Zip in years. You certainly created him beautifully, and his iconic style was easily recognized and the postal delivery carrier. I simply ADORE this.
