The Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary Challenge - Letter P

It's the end of the Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary Challenge and I'm so pleased with myself that I've kept up even if I did skid in by the seat of my pants some weeks. For the final letter which is P,  I have chosen the word peace, something we all hope will come in the world in 2017. I turned to Mr Google for some help this week for images - the map and hands. After printing off the map I stamped and embossed the sentiment over it. The hands were then cut out and glued onto the postcard. The Dove of Peace was stamped onto a piece of card, embossed, cut out and attached. I finished with the dictionary definition which was edged with a gold pen as was the postcard. A simple postcard to conclude the year's challenge - if only world peace was as easy. Not a great photo but it's a very dismal day here.

Thank you also to everyone one who has visited my blog during the year and to those who have left comments - it is very much appreciated. Finally, I wish you all a very happy and peaceful 2017.

A great word to finish the year on and so well illustrated. I do think we all deserve a pat on the back for this year long effort!

A fabulous postcard to end the 2016 challenge. This reminds me of those "hands across the ocean" vintage postcards from the early 20th century, I love those, used to collect them.
Thank you for your comments on my dictionary project and I wish you a very happy 2017. x
