ZOOM, ZOOM, I'm popping in today from up in the Vancouver area where I am happily crafting at my second retreat with Loll and friends. If you missed it, you can find last year's recap here. It's such a great time because these ladies are very fun and very talented when it comes to mixed media, so it's a blast to stretch my style horizons with them!
I'll have more to report on that later, but for now I have a coupla more inspiration cards for you as a reminder that we are halfway through our May Twofer Card Challenge #16 where the brief is THINGS WITH WH⎈⎈LS!
In case you are unfamiliar with the expression, SWAK stands for "sealed with a kiss." And here is some interesting information I found when I searched the etymology of the expression:
"... Well Kid I don't know nothing else to say only that I hope to see your sweet face Sat. Good by from your Dear Husban to his sweet little wife. P. S. excuse bad writing and mispelled words take all mistakes as kisses. S.W.A.K. * * *" This letter was postmarked at Des Moines October 20, 1909, addressed to Carrie Sprague at Jefferson, Iowa, and reached the latter place October 21, 1909. [(a conspiracy-to-lure-women-to-prostitution case), Supreme Court of Iowa, Nov. 16, 1910, reported in "Northwestern Reporter," Volume 128, 1911]
I hope I've inspired you to both kiss someone and play along in our May Twofer Card Challenge! Thank you if you've already played with your wh⎈⎈ls! The challenge closes at the end of day on May 24, 2019.
As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower! Please let me know you came by so I can be sure and return the flavor!
