If you want details, you can browse the individual cards here or here.

But here is the sum of my cards for Easter 2009:

And since it is April, the month of Earth Day (22nd)…I have pledged not to buy any scrapbooking material this month and to use my stash as much as possible.  I’m thinking of having the pledge run from April 22 to May 22.  Anybody else interested??

Sunday Postcard Art: Children

Alright…I’m sick as a dog (and how sick is THAT, you ask?) but I REALLY wanted to participate in this week’s challenge over at Sunday Postcard Art. Because I do not use a lot of vintage images, this wasn’t that easy for me. But I did step outside of my own box a little, and using some inspiration from Trader Joe’s Fearless Flyer. For those of you who are not familiar with Trader Joe’s, it is a wonderful grocery store chain that puts out an advertisement flyer which features old vintage cartoons that have been given new captions (in the context of the ads).

Well, Sweet Mary here is an image I cut out from a 1953 children’s choirbook. It was to illustrate some song about “helping mother” or some such thing.
