Throwback Thursday - Y&FH postcards


Today's Throwback Thursday post features two discontinued images from Y&FH.  Both were added to two more postcards.

First up is Summer Fumi.  I paper pieced her top with a small piece of washi paper, love the pattern.  The sentiment is a combination of an Island Scrapbooking sentiment that I colored with Copics and an MFT stamp that I clear embossed.  Because I wanted to use these as postcards I did this to the back:

Looks legit right?  When I mail it I'm hoping to keep it in a plastic sealed bag, wonder if I need to put the stamp on the outside?  I'd really hate to have it ruined before it arrives at it's destination. =/  I'll ask my friend to ask her mom who works for the post office for advice.  Next up is one of my favorites featuring Summer Chuckles...

I love the colors on this one.  The sentiment is another combination of a laser cut word from Island Scrapbooking and an AmyR sentiment.

If I look at him sideways he looks a little like Kelly Slater!!  hahaha!


Before I sign off I wanted to announce that according to Blogger this is my 1000th post!  Woo Hoo!

I still remember way back when I first started this blog trying to figure out how it works and then to come up with my first post; remembering how long it took to write it, yikes!  Now 1000 posts later I'm still here.  It might not be a milestone for most of you, but it is for me.  As a thank you to those who visit here for inspiration or to leave me a friendly comment I'd like to offer up a give-a-way to 3 of you.  The prizes will consist of items I have but have not used.  Believe me I have a lot of stuff that have not left the packages so the winners will enjoy some nice (IMO) crafty goodies.

Unfortunately I have to add some rules to the give-a-way, but hopefully they aren't too bad. (Revised)

LILO'S 1000th post Giveaway:
  1. Open to United States participants only
  2. Pick a number between 1-3
  3. Feel free to use one of the pictures above to post announcing the give-a-way. (Revised) 
This will be open until next Friday, July 24th and the winners announced on Sunday, July 26th. Good luck!!

I'll be back tomorrow with a new Aloha Friday challenge post.  Until then take care and thanks for stopping by!
