Sunday Postcard Art & FREE AT LAST Freebies Part Two

This week, the challenge at Sunday Postcard Art is "Vintage Children." Here's my entry, called
"A Bright Idea":

Note the little girl with the lizard; SOMEONE thought it would be a good idea to encourage THE PRINCESS to save up her cash (not to mention giving her extra chores so she could sweeten the pot that much more) with the blythe statement: "you can spend your own money on any dumb thing you please."

The idea was that her costume jewelry and her Modest Mouse CDs should be paid for out of HER wallet (as opposed to mine). REPEAT AFTER ME: "It Seemed Like a Bright Idea at the Time!"

SOOOOO she doesn't spend so much as a penny for a year, and then blows her giant pile of cash on a trio of iguanas she found on Craig's List.

(Little known fact: people desperate to rid themselves of a trio of iguanas on the internet apparently will deliver said iguanas to your doorstep.)

One of them is as big as a cat, and he has decided to loathe me with a seething passion (and this might - just MIGHT - be my fault; he may have taken offense to my comment, carelessly made in his earshot, that he would make a really nice purse. Who knew lizards were so sensitive?).

To check out the other Sunday Postcard entries (or to post one yourself!), go HERE:

AND NOW, here are your freebies!!!!

There's 18 elements in all, not all of them shown here (more bows, more frames, more roses, another text box). You can snag them FREE here:

If you haven't picked up the matching papers yet, please scroll down to the bottom of the next post to get thoose, too. And be sure to come back Sunday (not tomorrow, because it's my wedding anniversary, and my fabulous husband is taking me out for the day somewhere quiet, romantic, and lizard-free), when I should have more foolishness to share with you. Hugs!
