DCM Little Extra - Men & I'm tagged

I think the vintage layout in yesterday's blog post, has sapped me of my mojo as I struggled to get anything together for this mid week challenge. Still, the day has gone suddenly very bright & no doubt it is the calm before the storm, but I don't care it was bright enough to get a decent picture of this card.
I created the postcard myself in Desktop Publishing. The stamp on the postcard is put on using publisher & is a smaller version of the large photo. I place a larger version of the same image behind to act as backing paper.
Me being a vintage girl & all, I decided a B&W pic of a Penny farthing was better than the usual sports car or golf card you buy in the shops!!!

I have been tagged by Latharia in response to the 123 book meme.
here goes;
1. Find the nearest book
got it, was close to hand.
2. Name the book & the author
Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult
3.Turn to page 123. I'm there...
4. Got to the 5th sentence on the page & copy out the next three sentences onto your blog.
Sympathy, as any defense lawyer knows, can be bought with a good lie.
"What did you say to her, exactly?"
"She was four, she had no experience with death, my parents were already both gone when she was born & elise's mom & dad lived in Mexico"
5. Tag 3 more people.
I tag Kathy(Kathy's waffle), Rhonda (help (me) Rhonda, & Lynne (crafty devil)
Thanks Latharia, I had fun with this!! Is someone going to write a book with all the sentences?

I love this card, too. And what a fun game! Hope this wonderful burst of creativity continues for a long time - you've been doing some really beautiful things.

Thanks - as always - for your message. Don't forget to pop back in and add a couple of things you thought you'd never do! :o)

XXOO - Concetta

Wow Paula, you have been really busy lately, love all of your creations.

Sadly I have been finding it hard to find the time to make cards, maybe if I try really hard I can do the new DCM dare.....fingers crossed.
