Another crafting thank you

I have made a decision to do a thank you post once every couple of weeks for all the lovely crafting goodies that I have been getting. My thanks this time are mostly for vintage trading cards (how cool is that!). These first three are from a family of crafters Mum, Frances Gale and daughters Michaela (aged 9) and Kayleigh (aged 8). I just love the humour in these ones.
'What's your fortune?' is from Mhairi Forsyth and the gypsy lady has a message which you can only see when it is looked at in a mirror. I like the eyes peering round the side of this one. The vintage portrait is part of the favourite theme swap and is from Angela Clerehugh..I love the use of the flower and the decoupage effect of the portrait.
These three wonderful ATCs were as a result of the 'distressed vintage' swap that I entered. The sporty gent is from Jan Matthews and I love the way this gentlemen is so smartly dressed in jacket, tie and boater ready to play tennis. The one with music on is from Mhairi Forsyth and I just love the use of layers in this ATC with the lovely touch of the bit of pink on the main photo to highlight it. The ATC with the kids on is from Sandra Mckeever and again there is a lovely use of layers, staining of paper (with tea I think!) and peel offs.
Finally I received another fat book page...this time from Mhairi Forsyth. This is the most unusual one I have had, the background is actually embossed and then the images are layered up on top of that. It is great fun and will probably end up being the climax to what is a wonderful book. More soon,
