I've have a deep fondness for journaling spots and cards and collect them from many manufacturers. Cosmo Cricket's were the first I fell in love with. Cosmo Cricket used to sell its journaling cards, which they call elements, as a cut-apart paper sheet in the collections. Starting with the newest collections. Cosmo Cricket now sells its journaling spots as shaped element decks, which are super cute and easy to use. I used the Tea for Two element deck on both cards below.
Some of the element cards have vintage images on them. I love this image of the little girls running outside to play and it immediately made me think of the old playground ditty: Say say oh playmate, Come out and play with me. And bring your dollies three. Climb up my apple tree....When I was a young girl, this was a favorite jump rope song and clap along song. I made this card for my dear friend who's having a birthday this week. I haven't seen her in a couple of months and am so looking forward to an playdate with her.
I made these cards as entries in last week's Cosmo Cricket journal card challenge. You can find all the entries here as well as information on the new challenge to use something old.
