LOVE BIRDS: The vintage post card use here is one with graphics on it. Glued a strip of vintage sheet music then I distressed it with ink. The birds were cut from note cards, punchanella and a flower brad was also used. The heart I cut from some of my hand painted paper then a rhinestone was added. More distressing and its was done. I think they look like a couple love birds separated. What do you think?

CARD SWAP SUNSHINE: The first card is one of the blank vintage post cards, with a copy of a 195o-60s' dress pattern. I have the original and copied it and cut the little girl out. Found the sun in a magazine, a flower brad, stamped a few flowers and added tea died lace at the bottom.The card then was distressed all over.
The vintage post card on the right is one of the Railway Express graphic. I distressed it and glued a vintage music sheet punched out flower over that a couple of flowers I cut from a garden magazine, butterfly cut out and colored with chalk pencils, with rhinestones added. Then mesh ribbon at the bottom.

MORE : The card on the right is another RRE card first distressed, then a doodle flower I did and colored with the chalk pencils again. Put some rhinestones in the middle of flower. Same with the cut out butterfly with rhinestone. the envelope at the bottom is an advertisement for Martha's punches. I cut it out of a magazine. I added a sequin to the flap. The post card on the right distressed all over, a repo of seed packet cut out, butterfly stamped and cut from old atlas, colored with water color crayon, a few flowers were stamped on the back ground also. The three flowers at top are part of a vintage necklace. Also flower brad. I put a rhinestone in the middle of one flower on the seed packet.

ONE MORE: This one is RRE vintage post card distressed all over, cut out sun flowers from garden magazine, a flower brad in the corner with a game piece ( a little fairy princess) hanging from it with a piece of bakers twine.
I really had a great time doing these post cards. I still want to do the give away, with my extra post cards I did. Leave a comment on any of these post about the card swap and that enters you in the give away. I will draw the name on the 31st of March. So far I have one comment. Hmmm
Please join in the give away. Tomorrow I will show the altered vintage post card to give away maybe more will join in.
That's all for now thanks for looking and come back soon
