These are part of my digital collage project. The cards often start with clippings from a magazine. "Treasured memories" is lettered with a brush pen, which shows up well against the busy background.
I worked for 4+ years in Leiden, about 3/4 of an hour inland from Amsterdam. I loved Leiden--it was like a pretty, much smaller version of Amsterdam and that small town had seven (!) museums, most in the center of town.
My coworkers and I all had bicycles. Even though the company provided cars, bicycles could miss the "rush-hour" traffic jams. Those two- and four-lane roads weren't made to handle the every-increasing number of cars on the road. Plus, there were interesting things to see on the out-of-the-way lanes we could easily take via bike.
Whenever first-time visitors came to town, they invariably wanted to visit Amsterdam, so a group of us would take the train and play tour guide. Way too many wonderful memories for a 4x6 postcard!!!
