Pretty Pastels

Now that I have a working scanner, I plan to share some of my greeting card collection with you.

Today I have some pretty pastel cards that make me think of Spring.

I love the fonts used on these old cards almost as much as the sweet images.

There always seems to be more artwork on the inside. Bonus!

Lots of these soft colors are highlighted with metallic gold or silver.

More metallic on this one.

Aren't these girls just the sweetest?

I love bluebirds in a cottage garden.

I hope when you click on this you can read the wishes for the 'cotton' anniversary.
Please feel free to save these images to use for your personal papercrafting projects.

Those are great cards!
The baby in the shoe looks like a picture from my babybook, which is going to be 50 years old this year!

I have been out of town and am just now starting to catch up. Aren't scanners wonderful? Thank you for sharing those dear cards. I've always loved seeing the wee graphics inside. =D

These cards are so adorable! It's so fun to look through them and see how things have changed over the years. Have a nice weekend!

Oh Linda, I'm so glad to see you back. You were missed. Sometimes we just need a break. I always feel like I am a slacker on the blog, but my real life has to take precedence over my blog, and that's all there is to it! I hope you are all refreshed and renewed! Thanks for the nice comment too, I appreciate it!
