Vintage Postcard {and a giveaway}

Welcome to May Arts / Lawn Fawn Blog Week!  We just love teaming up with this fabulous company! We have got a ton of inspiration and giveaways planned for you, so I hope you are ready!  

We are starting off with this Vintage Postcard by Prima Ribbonista, Candy Roosenberg.  Enjoy!

 


This set from Lawn Fawn is so stinkin’ cute and reminds us that there is still snail mail in our world.  I have some vintage postcards that are from the 40’s that have printed postage for 4 cents on them.  It is crazy to think that in reality the amount of postage has not gone up that much in so many years.  I decided to make a stack of stamped vintage postcards and wrap them up with May Arts twine to give as a gift to a friend going away.

Now here’s your chance to win goodies of your own!   Each day we will be giving away a different prize from Lawn Fawn!   Today it is Lawn Fawn’s Petite Paper Pack:

All you have to do is comment on any post today!  Tomorrow I will annouce a winner and a new prize pack to give away!

And be sure to stop on by the Lawn Fawn blog to win some M/A Ribbon!
 

Happy hopping & good luck to all!

xoxo!

    How cute!  I have some very old postcards that have postage on them, but never knew what to do with them.  This is a great idea.  Thanks for the inspiration!

    I remember the days of the four cent stamps (just that makes me vintage too!)  It was four cents for a postcard or an unsealed envelope; five cents if you sealed the envelope. Crazy huh? And I adore that sweet collection from Lawn Fawn. Thank you for the chance to win.
