French Country Book Bundle

And ... I'm back! In case you noticed, I dropped out of the blogosphere for a while due to some health issues and a short stay in the hospital. Thanking the Lord that everything turned out okay, except the huge bill I'm afraid I'll be seeing!

I am so happy to get back to the fun of creating and blogging! I have been smitten with those charming coverless book bundles all around blogland and in the magazines. So I ripped the covers off a couple of old books (I did feel a bit guilty doing it!) and got to work.

I found a charming vintage French postcard at The Graphics Fairy that I printed out on heavy cardstock.  The vintage ticket embellishment, coin and doily are all from my stash of vintage goodies.  Here is the finished project:

Thanks for visiting and your comments are treasured!  Linking up to the fun parties below.  See you there!
