Take Ten

I mentioned yesterday I was thrilled to see my work that had been published in the newest Fall Take Ten. I had 15 cards published in total. These three were some of my favorites. I found the vintage images in a very cool retro/vintage antique shop near my home. I just fell in love with all three of them. I didn't know what I would do with them at first, but when I did decide to make cards with them I was very pleased with the results. Marcia commented on some of my previous stamped cards that the little girls had such big bows on their heads, they must have had very strong necks. Here it is in real life, Marcia.

I just knew when I saw the picture of these three friends they were in Paris in the springtime.


This vintage bathing beauty makes me not so fearful of putting on my bathing suit.
I've got more to show tomorrow!

They are wonderful. I am in love with the ladies in Paris. Reminds me of my dear MIL. She loved hats, and traveled with her girfriends a lot. Many adventures that keep us all happy remembering.

Those are so great! I would just love to know what was going through the swimming suit gal's mind at the time. She looks a little crabby. LOVE all of them.
