A set of vintage collage notecards

I made a card for Rinda's collage card challenge [a couple of posts down].........only it wasn't just a card........it was a notecard [or notelet as we often say in the UK].........to send a few words to a friend.......but having really enjoyed making it..........I thought a set of vintage notecards would make a really nice present...........so I made 3 more......all very similar,but not identical.........as befits a set.

Of course it's a lousy photo.......the top 2 cards are on blue cardstock and blue ribbon, with the bottom 2 on green with green ribbon.........all the images are free downloads from the wonderful oldphotoalbum blog.
A pretty good start to my 2010 aim to make more and buy less.....first present of the year made......and even this idea came from Rinda........as she often pops a handmade card in as an extra gift with the main gift......I'm obviously more miserly.......cause this is THE gift!!
Back to work tomorrow morning....and what are they forecasting over night ....... snow....... living on a steep hill..........that is not funny!!!
