2013 is coming to an end, as must all things. I am presenting the last 4 of the New Year’s Cherub Postcards, making it a total of 16 cards.
Print them all, and bunt them together if you are having a party on New Year’s Eve, or download only your favorites for keeps. With a little editing, most of them are suitable for all year crafting, in fact I have seen many of them online with other messages than “Happy New Year” 😉 They’d be cute for the upcoming Valentine’s Day too 😀
Today’s post lend the year and it’s title from the French card in this batch. But as you can clearly see from the top 2 cards, the postcards were painted by the same artist, but distributed in two different countries. This was common for most printers, they’d take advantage of different seasons and various markets by adjusting the message and the language on the cards. Back in the days, most customers would never know, since communication between the countries were much more scarce than today. Internet has revealed such bygone times business-ventures to us in all its glory. Very clever indeed. And no different than companies of today will operate 😉
Here are the individual postcards:
And with those sweet little New Year’s poems, and the cutest little cherub tushie I have ever seen, this series of New Year’s cards has also come to an end. For tomorrow, the last day of the year 2013, I have a surprise post planned for all you peeps out there, so make sure you peek in to see it 😉
The individual scans are 600dpi, and can be printed in full A4-size, looking great. High quality files can be downloaded here:
These files are free for your personal use and enjoyment 😀

Thank you!!!! I am sending the French one to my friend in Paris!
Yay, how kewl is that, a vintage French card going back to Paris, over 100 years later! It somehow feels like the circle has been completed, or maybe I’m just sentimental with New Year’s Eve and all…:-P Happy New Year 🙂 xoxoxo
