I have to confess to being a bit of a fantasy/sci-fi geek so I couldn't resist the Time Traveller set from Kindred Stamps. How could I pass up Doctor Who-inspired stamps?!
I remember as a child, cowering behind my grandmother's sofa as the Daleks pursed Doctor Who - in glorious black and white - across the television screen, with their robotic voices chanting, "Ex-ter-min-ate! Ex-ter-min-ate!" It tickled my fancy to have that turned into a birthday greeting.
Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker were the Doctors of my childhood. I've been lucky enough to share Doctor Who with my children too: Peter Davison with my eldest and then the greatest Doctors of all, Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant, with the younger ones. It will be interesting to see how the new female incarnation of the Doctor works out.
The choice of red and gold was not completely random - the Supreme Dalek of the New Dalek Empire was red with golden orbs. Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight seemed red and gold enough, although I probably should have made his eyetube blue.
Inspiration for this card also came from the sketch at Sunday Stamps. You can join their challenge up until 10 August.
We'd love to have you join us at The Paper Players this week. Have a look at The Paper Players to see what the rest of the team have done, then why not join in?
