  1. Your ingenuity knows no bounds! Absolute works of art, as always.
    I love that old Durban photo. If only it could return to those days …
    I recently designed some similar post cards with our sea view for a visitor from UK. I laminated the picture side, which seemed to work quite well.


I would ❤️ to hear from you.
