Postcard Travels with Roland Poland - Week10 Canada

Xui Xong, our canine hero's benefactor, is on business in Toronto.  Mrs Xong fancies a new Arctic fox coat and takes Roland Poland up north for a few days.
He writes to his brother Malcolm back home in Carlisle.

Hi Malcolm,
Went north to Hudson Bay on the Polar Bear Express.
Joined a dog sled team for a few days.  Great bunch
of lads but we got fed on raw fish - how they can live on cat food
all the time is beyond me - yuck.
See ya bro'
RP

Here is the page I made in his travel book.
I have used stamps of Canada geese and maple leaves and a photo of a painting of Niagara Falls.  On the right is a photo of Lake Louise in Banff and the aeroplanes are for my Dad who learned to fly there during the war.

The postcard is made by sponging colour onto a base card using ripped pieces of paper as masks.  The running dog team is drawn with a fine marker and the husky dogs are a stamp from Clarity.
Thank you very much for all your kind comments and I do hope you will visit all the other participants in this wonderful around the world challenge.

  19. Thanks for your visit, Janet. Doodling is literally no-brain activity. BTW, I like your dog sled. We just heard that the leader in the Idirod is a woman.

  20. What?! No duty free liquor involved in this week's escapade? And no sled dog femme fatale? Roland has surely turned over a new (maple) leaf! Good lad to get all of that fresh air and exercise instead!
