POSTCARD CHALLENGE WEEK 14~SINGAPORE

So this week I  was BEHIND on all my projects (prepping for Easter ). Then on top of this I  hit this brick wall of per exhaustion - due to the fact I was not home the last 3 weekends -So when it came time to do my challenge I didn't have the energy to work on it at night  during the week -So this posting is late; but I did get it done. Darcy choose the country of Singapore. Oh the topics could be anything from colorful birds , plants, temples, or Buddhas, or the many islands that make up Singapore. I choose the city  of Marina Bay - The buildings are amazing and the way the city was planned in the 1970's is an exciting story in itself. Being this year is the Year of the Dragon I chose to make a dragon my main topic and the city skyline for my page. Enjoy .

The background image is from the Chinese New Year Celebration

dragon . It was done in flocking and glitter with a little paint pen outlining.

Back of Card
Correspondence:
"Alexander,
So Close but yet so far away- Sorry we did not have a chance
to meet each other last month!'
I have been home for the last several weeks-Memory is slow to return, but the one
thing I would like to know- What is your Full name? You've known mine for over 4 months - So spill the Beans!
Also you mention your business ventures, but never say what your job is?
I know once again so many questions...
This postcard is from my friend's trip to Marina Bay , Singapore
Until Later,
