Playing With Face cards

I've always taken it for granted that all face cards are the same.
Not so!
Check out these queens above.
Similiar to each other, but each quite unique.

Kind of neat how they all face different directions too.

I love the wild pattern combinations on their clothing.

And here a couple of old jokers.

Need lots of all one kind of face card?
I have them for sale in my etsy (of course!)
Royalty comes by the dozen, while the jokers I only have 8 of.
Each group would make a cool display all framed up or maybe you need a bunch of knaves for an Alice in Wonderland altered book?
You could also create some unique invites to a girls' art party with all queens.
hint, hint
Or create a kingly collaged cigar box for the man in your life.
You can tell I had awhile to think as I played with my decks and decks of cards.

Decks of cards are not just for games anymore thanks to a little bit of imagination and glue!

Uh, uh, you are trying to tempt me aren't you.... However, you should see the "pink" cards I have which were created about a year ago for some of the proceeds to go to breast cancer research. I so LOVE playing cards. Great post! Have a great evening my BFF. hugs

Jokers are my favorite -- I'm always disappointed there are only two in a deck! They always make them so different from deck to deck! Fun!
