Happy Labor Day Weekend!

(photos taken outside just now between rain showers)
It's Friday!
End of a 5 day giveaway!
Today is a batch of goodies ....
a vintage postcard with vintage buttons, a rubber stamp,
a Christmas tag, an embroidered button, a spruced up pad with a rosette,
some lace I dyed yesterday and
some other lace.... and a deck of cards!
The deck of cards was produced in late 2008.
It is one of three decks the Christian Paper Artists Yahoo Group
has done in the last 8 years or so.
It's quite a production ... I'm in charge of it.... and I don't know
that we will repeat it.
The deck I'm giving away is based on Proverbs.
Each card has a different collage on it featuring a scripture.
You can play with these as they do show the card suits and numbers.
They were professionally printed and I will tell you before you
all write and inquire.... yes, it is extremely expensive.
You need a group to do it and it is good to have one or two people
that are willing to order a large quantity that they can sell.
Remember to be sure and leave me a way to reach you!
Kathleen, I can't reach you.... you can email me please... my address is at the top.
I would like to contact you even if you don't win!
I laid some cards out for you to see,
but the deck you receive will be new and unopened.
If you just got here...
you can still leave a comment on any day and be eligible for that day's winnings!
Monday has all the details.
I will draw the winners on Sunday
as I'll be away Saturday!
Happy Labor Day to all in the USA!

Hi Linda, so glad to see these since I've seen some swaps of playing cards, but have never done this. Very cute cards.
