Thank God It's Friday - Vintage


Nellie is hosting the TGIF challenge this week and she's chosen Vintage as her theme.

This inspired me to make a postcard using old family photos of our holidays just after the war. Yep that's me sitting on my Grandma's knee. And yes, one of those ladies is my Grandma with her dress tucked up so she could have a paddle.

Background from lisbonlionness, other photos are my own.

Fonts : Handwriting Dakota and Kleinslabserif.

I love the look of this card. This is awesome. I am building a calendar for my husband of old photos and this is great inspiration. I love the text working the eye through the page.
