Comment: Thank you for the postcard from Scotland! Hmm... I did not believe in the lochness monster but it would be cool to visit the home and look for evidence.

Comment: Neato PC and I LOVED the stamps you used! I had never heard of the Falkirk Wheel, but it looked fascinating so my kiddos and I sat down and studied up on it for the last 15mins. Very awesome stuff! Thank you for the send! Best wishes from FL! <3
Response: Thank you, that is great, I'm so glad you liked it. I have visited the Falkirk Wheel and it is a magnificent feat of engineering. Very close to it are "The Kelpies" which are wonderful as well, did you happen upon them in your studies?

Response: I'm so glad you like it. I think if the North Sea warms up we are all in trouble! I will hopefully travel to a sea that is naturally warmer :-)

Response: Thank you very much, I'm glad you like it. I painted vellum paper with metallic paint using a stencil. The 3 silver circles are glue dots rubbed with transfer foil. Hope that helps?

Sorry to keep you waiting! We had not heard of "The Kelpies" when we did our look up and then subsequent Google Earth visit around and down the waterway. However, once you mentioned it we did look it up. Gorgeous! Absolutely gorgeous! Day or night, they must be quite the sight to behold. I have to wonder what other hidden (or not) treasures you have in Scotland that I have never heard of but are worth seeing and researching. :)
