Friday freebie - vintage postcard 1

I've been rummaging through old photographs lately, and found two vintage postcards - my grandma Kittie gave it to me when I was probably 13 or so? I never wanted to use it because it was so pretty! Here's the first one - just click on the picture and right click to download. Oh . . .  and I removed the cigarette from his hand - never  liked that ;-) - have fun!

Cirque du ciel

I had a lot of fun with this design and actually made a few versions - I don't like doing that, because I end up not knowing which one to choose ;-) My entry for the celestial challenge over at Take a Word this week.

Friday freebie- map takeout box

I am combining my freebie with the Three Muses challenge theme this week - maps. These little boxes make a nice container for party favours or for something sweet to surprise someone or just a small gift box. Hope you like! Have a great weekend . . . .  why not take a map and discover a new route to an old destination!
