Vintage Ephemera and Printable Vintage Bingo Cards

In order to find some vintage images for some of the "ephemera" used in my Inspiration Add-On Kit, I took advantage of the Internet and my printer!!!  To do this yourself, try doing a "Google Image" search for vintage advertisements, vintage postcards, or vintage ephemera.  You will get 1000's of results... simply right click on the image you like, save the picture to your computer, re-size it (if necessary) and print it onto cardstock! 

The EXACT bingo cards I printed (on white cardstock) are taken from a Flickr album created by Joy (autumnsensation).  She has generously shared a variety of vintage photos.  You can download the image by clicking on the link below...

You might want to check out her whole "vintage image" free album...it's pretty cool!!!

One of our fellow "Counterfeiters" has also designed a set of free printable Bingo cards with the months of the year on them.  You can visit her blog and download them from this link http://makelemonadelife.blogspot.com/2011/01/counterfeit-kit-challenge.html  Thank you, Erin!!!

Have fun searching for some great images!
