On Our Travels With Darcy's Postcard Challenge - Denmark

My first ever trip on an airplane was in 1969 when with a small group of fellow students I went to Denmark for a week to study their education system. This is the postcard I sent home to my Mum and Dad!
Open sandwiches were obviously a new one on me!
Many memories this week, as I child I loved Fairy Stories and so loved visiting The Little Mermaid statue when in Copenhagen. So my postcard for this week is a mermaid. The stamp is from Clarity stamps and her scales are made with Stickles.
My page also is a tribute to Hans Christian Andersen and the photos on the page are my originals from that trip.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane Darcy.
To see the other travellers' postcards go to Art and Sole.

  6. How cool is that, that you went to Denmark as a kid? BTW I love the DCWV Once upon a time paper- Mermaid card is so cute.

  7. Did you draw that mermaid yourself??? She is beautiful! Thank you for sharing your own memories with us :D XXX

    1. I wish, I can't draw for toffee. She is a stamp drawn by Barbara Gray of Clarity stamps.
