Wisconsin Vacation Altered Postcard

The Sunday Postcard Art challenge this week is to alter a postcard.  

I've had this little postcard for such a long time.  It's a strange size ...not even quite 3.5 X 5.  So I cut a postcard size kraft paper and added my vacationers and a bird to the scene.


I forgot to take a picture of the postcard in it's original state, but I think it's pretty clear that it was just some cows in a pasture.  I haven't played with these two people characters in a long time.  This was a fun filled challenge this week.

And of course we need the card back to tell the rest of the story.


It was tough to decide between this phrase and something about getting a new travel agent.

In reality, Wisconsin is a beautiful state and I love it.

Happy Mail Day!

:) I'm still smiling about this one. Especially the line, "and another thing, Norm" -- My husband sometimes tells me, "no, no other thing, Jen!"

Love your happy holidaying couple. Poor Norm - and he doesn't even have a table or a drink. I like his flowery shirt which goes so well with his expression - NOT! The little bird is the perfect finishing touch, I can just imagine what he is thinking.
Pretty good fussy cutting too.

Hilarious a fun and creative makeover.

A creative idea, Annie! I love how you added this fun couple on the postcard.
Brilliant as always! Mar :)

Have never been to Wisconsin but I believe the cows in the green pasture are very real. As for your cute couple I think you nailed the conversation. Taking a regular postcard and altering it looks like a really fun challenge. Uber clever Miss Annie Freezeframe..

This is so dang gone funny - a vacation in the middle of a cow pasture - great sentiment to go with the image too!
