A No Photo Page & a Christmas Card. Of course!

Good Day Fellow Crafters!
The journaling will explain my 'no photo' LO, I think:
And the surprise? He was obv short of drawing paper during World War 2:
 Interesting. He doesn't recall drawing it at all! Bit of a tricky page.
cos I wanted to kee the 'integrity' of the cards.
This LO is for STUCK?! SKETCHES. I may have taken
liberties, but it is based on this:
I hope you can see how I've been inspired. It's VERY old bg paper:
The card on the left is a postcard style, so it's attached with that light bulb clip.
I've made the '5' card a flip up & out one, only glueing the very back of it down:
Guess I should've covered the back of  those flowers. Aaah well. It's mostly hidden!
I haven't done a 'retro/vintage' page for ages. But these cards 'asked' for it: 
And I just realised that Margy M is getting ahead of me with
already starting her Christmas Cards. All quedos to her!
So I joined in with OLCC:
With this one:
And that's it from me!
Have a good one ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  8. A great way to preserve those precious cards and the drawing too. The wooden rulers as the background are the perfect foil for your topic. I'm really going to attempt to get two Christmas cards done each month. Margy has started something and of course you are renowned for being fast out of the blocks. I've got two days to get two done. Puff...pufff :D
