a visit to the world of big people

 Have you ever made something very, very tiny? 
What a delight it was to make these teensy playing cards!
And, with a little difficulty, play an entire card game. 
Doesn't she look like the Queen of Hearts? Ha ha!
 A dear friend of ours, from The Garret Corner, invited us over for a Regency Whist Party during the Christmas holidays. A perfectly jolly time we all had being together and learning how to play Whist with our amiable friends.
 So, I thought, why not bring it down to size for our fashionables, hmm?
And so I did. With card stock, pencil, pen, ink, a rubber stamp and some scissors. They are about 1/2" x 5/8" and the stack of 52 is about the same thickness as a people sized deck of cards. But, My! What a great deal of fun for such a tiny parcel.

Happy Autumn!
