Caution: There Is A Very Bad Word In This Post!

What a fabulous weekend and blog party that was! Anyone ready for the next one?! ;)

As for the winner of the blog makeover giveaway...don't rush me! I haven't drawn the winner yet but will make the big announcement in my next post, I promise! (Or do I already know the winner and am just dragging out the suspense? Hmmmm....)

Until then, feast your eyes upon the sweetest little ole eye candy you ever did see! As I mentioned before, I am hosting a vintage ATC swap over at Life Preservers Scrapbook Club and I don't know if it was because I'm the hostess or what but somehow, in between the mountains of Christmas party merriment, I finished my 12 ATCs in record time! And of course was so excited about them that I couldn't wait to post them and see what y'all think!



I used pages from an old book (the book was falling apart and in horrid shape so I felt no shame in gutting it. :D)



I used some pin-ups, various goodies and punchinella from Gauche Alchemy and LPS. Then I used Stickles to highlight particular phrases that caught my eye.



What do you think?! I have to say how proud I am of these because the ATCs I made previously to this were doody. lol That's such a fun dirty word...doody...hee hee...

Those are some sexy ladies! Love how you highlighted phrases on each one..."I am all ready to play" is my favorite! SO naughty!

Gina said...

Maggi, these are AWESOME!

My favorite is definitely the pale pin-up with the rose in her mouth. You should sell these on Etsy, if you don't already. Gorgeous.

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

These are soooo fun! Love how you did them.

(Hey, does any one know if there is a specific size that the ATCs are supposed to be? I've heard differing views, but one site says "must be 2.5x3.5" and says they "must not be sold, only exchanged"...) ...thanks for any input.

also, I actually was able to put up a scrolling marquee! googled it and ta-dah!... so yay! I grabbed your button and have it on my blog... next attempt, is to try and create a button for me...that may take a while!

Carmen said...
