Now that I have your attention, Linda (and everyone else's I suppose! haha!), I just had to share the fun things I made this morning with your vintage scrapbook images you sent me oh so long ago. The little Kate Greenway looking girl is now set off prettily with a deep pink border, while Little Red Riding Hood has ditched the wolf and now flies on red butterfly wings! Both are mounted on library book cards. And as an added note, the little paper scraps I mounted the girls to are from paper swatch books Anna sent me. She got a wonderful windfall of swatch books and shared the wealth (also a long time ago)! Thank you friends!
BTW, anyone wanting some cards (you know, what used to come in the pockets of library books), I would be happy to send you some. Send me a little bit of your own stash in exchange or an ATC (I am not asking for a humungous envelope, just a gesture). All of my cards are from the Corder Library, so you get a souvenier of the town I live in. :) Just email me and we can exchange addresses. I will even mail internationally! The cards pictured are mint green, but they also come in white (one of each color went into a book). Below is another bit of Linda scrap. I carefully peeled the horse and rider from the yellowed, brittle scrapbook paper and mounted them on foam dots so they stand away from the "betting board" (really a yellowed receipt from a shipping company).. I added the ribbons because they made me think of racing silks. I made up the silly rhyme and typed it out on my favorite, long suffering, vintage typewriter. I am sending the card to a horsey friend of mine.
