Another lovely mail day today - my return Vintage Notecards from Lenna's Creative Swaps arrived!
I have already been contacted by the 3 ladies who received mine (I so enjoy knowing where my 'babies' have gone, click here to be reminded about the ones I made), and waited in anticipation for the returnees.
Today's the day and Oh Boy, have I struck lucky!
First up is this dreamy beauty by Corinne Marie. I can't begin to explain how gorgeous this is, from the sweet image of the be-flowered girl, to the butterflies, to the gold accents, to the music score, to the ribbon, etc.
It is so beautiful, *sigh*.
Next is this wonderful piece of textural heaven by Sharon Walworth. The gorgeous layered bronzed gold, cream doilies, ribbon and vintage French accents bring a superb faded charm. This notecard really is a joy to hold, having a weight which adds to its beauty.
It is absolutely stunning.
(note, I'll have to see if I can take a better photo tomorrow - in the daylight - as the scanner didn't like the button and has made the image rather blurry)
Finally is this amusing notecard by Jewels from Just Tickety Boo. I so love that the obviously posing couple are wearing roller skates. Just look at the expressions on their faces, particularly his! Jewels thoughtfully enclosed a note detailing the materials used in her card - explaining that she copied fabric onto card stock, which is a brilliant idea. The music is original score from 1931. I adore the colour choices for this notecard, which perfectly complement the lady's dress (which is beautiful and a wonderful example of its time).
It is so gorgeous, I love it.
I have to admit that these cards will not be used as notecards and sent out, because I am going to selfishly keep them safe at home. I will allow myself to look at them and stroke them every so often (like a miser gloating over his piles of money), but that is as far as they are going.
This post is as close as you lot are going to get to
them, HA HA HA HA!!!
You see, owning these beauties has already corrupted me.
Lenna is going to arranging another swap soon, mini books, so if you fancy being corrupted just like I have then you might want to keep an eye out for it - click here to get to Creative Swaps and follow her blog.
