Brag Monday at The Graphics Fairy & Free Images for You

If you've visited this blog before, you know that I give away free vintage images.  I enjoy visiting The Graphics Fairy Blog for free images.  Karen posts free images every day.  Each Monday she hosts a "Brag Monday", where we can post items that we've made using her images.  This is going to be my first time participating and I'll share my project below with you.  

I found this postcard image at The Graphics Fairy of four ladies having tea and cake, a real photo postcard.  I've collected real photo postcards of people for years and have never seen one like this.  I was immediately drawn to it.  I made it into a birthday card for my dear friend Sue, by adding the scripture followed by a humorous sentiment - A friend loveth at all times Proverbs 17:17, Especially when there is cake.  I had fun embellishing the card with rhinestone stickers, 1/2 pearls and vintage lace.  Sue was pleased to receive it.  Here's the card.

I chose a couple of real photo vintage postcards of children for the free images I'm offering today.  I hope you're pleased with them.

This next sweet image I've posted before, but just had to re-post her along with her little friends here.  Isn't she darling.  I just love her expression and her wrinkled tights.

Thanks for stopping by today my friends.  More images coming this week for you, so check back.  Have a blessed day.


Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.  Psalm 37:4
