Thank you for the postcard for the Postcard Roulette! I love the picture of the reading girls. (I'm just a bit confused that you are not listed as a participant for the swap.)

Hi Barbara, thank you for your part in the collaborative postcard #1. I love seeing what was done with my postcard.

Hello Barbara! I cannot leave a rating since we personally agreed on the exchange and there was no official swap but thank you very much for the colorful postcard! The city pictured is Dnipropetrovsk which is in the Ukraine! Your cat sounds so sweet--we have one cat that is so sweet as well and one that is...well...sometimes sweet when he decides to be! Heh! Thank you again! Kindly, Christina
