A Laugh & a CU/PU Freebie

I've been rummaging through boxes of "stuff" my Grandma left me. Gives you a little hint on where I'm going with my next kit, which I am soooo excited about. It is my favorite one so far. I can't wait to finish it! *lol*

In my rummaging, I came across a stack of gorgeous old cards my Papaw had given to my Grandma. I'm not sure of the exact age on any of the cards because none of them are dated in any way (of course). Papaw passed away long before I was born though, in the late 40s. So the cards have to be from the 1930s - 1940s. These cards are just gorgeous. You know you will be seeing them in my kits whenever I can work them in. One card really caught my attention and made me realize how much times really have changed.

Can you imagine your husband giving you this card?

You need to beat me four times a day to make me sweet and sunny!

The "Durn it" cracks me up! Can you imagine if someone came out with a card like this today? Ha! (If you click on the images you can see them larger.)

Along with this funny little gem, I found some beautiful old Valentines cards I cut some bits from here and there. Since I don't really have time to design a kit around them, I decided to just offer them up by themselves as a little CU/PU freebie for you. Since I needed a paper to display them on, I whipped up a little scalloped edge paper from the back of an ancient Christmas card. *lol* My scanner has been putting in overtime this week. You get the original paper, plus a red and a pink version, 2 cards, a pretty cluster, & a paper heart . Everything is full size and 300 ppi.

I hope you love my Vintage Valentine as much as I do.

  6. What a fun kit. I have some vintage Valentine
    cards that belonged to my aunts. They would be over 110 if they were still living. They both taught school for many years and received the cards from their students. I am so happy to have them.
