Blog Giveaway and more Free Vintage Images

If you read my last post, you know that I am very fond of children.  I have a collection of real photo postcards of children.  Years ago, I had an idea to have notecards printed from my favorite postcards.  The 8 images you see above were my favorites at that time.  I went to a local printer and selected my paper and envelopes, a rich creamy ivory.  At my request, the cards were printed with a sepia tone look.   I called them "Abigail's Greetings" which is printed on the back of each card.  These images above are not part of the free images I'm offering on this blog. 

PLEASE NOTE:  This giveaway is no longer active but might be revived at a future date.


Behold, children are a gift from the Lord.  Psalm 127:3

Children are a GIFT, I just love that scripture.  Whether you have your own children, adopted children, step children, grandchildren, or other children in your life through family and friends, they are a GIFT to you.  

See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven continually see the face of My Father who is in heaven.  Matthew 18:10

Did you get that?  Their angels in heaven.  I'm sure you've heard of guardian angels.  This scripture tells us that children have their own angels.  How awesome is that!!!

Here's a free vintage postcard image for you of a sweet little boy with a cheery greeting.  I have taken the words off the second image so you can add your own if you'd like.  You can click on each image for a larger view.  Right click and save to your computer.  Enjoy!!

I am in the county and busy speaking but I too some time to look at your blog. I love pretty as well. Even when I lived in the mud hut I had some pretty things to help make it feel like a haven for me. I think that is one reason why I am liking card making...it is a easy way to make some pretty. Thanks for your blog. BETH
