Here's a little row of bunting I've coloured for you - it's a png, so Save As a png if you'd like a transparent background.

This is a high resolution, 900px wide.

Live Your Life - blinkie

As I have now deleted all the content on the Blogology blog due to Photobucket's new policies (you now have to pay for hosting, and blog backgrounds etc are no longer hosted at the correct size) I thought I'd move over a couple of favourite blinkies etc for you to use.

Copy the code below, and paste into an html widget in your sidebar!
<div class="1stfloorfreebies-live-love-blinkie" style="width: 250px; margin: 0 auto;">
<a href="https://1stfloorflatfreebies.blogspot.co.uk/" rel="nofollow">
<img src="https://tinyurl.com/yca2qjs2" alt="1stfloorfreebies" width="250" />

I originally designed and released this one on Blogology around 5 years ago, but I still like it. 

I hope you'll have fun with this!

CENSORED - CU - fun photoshopped 1920s vintage image

Here's a fun one for you: Censored, which is a 1920s vintage image and a little Photoshop re the lettering.

This was originally on my dieting blog (now given up...) but might be fun for men's cards etc.

As always, right-click to copy, Save Image As to download to your own computer.

CU allowed for this one, and attribution would be nice. I'd also love to see any artwork you produce if you use this image.

Here's a free printable I created for you!

Right click to copy and download, then print on standard A4 size paper. Sized at 8in x 10in, this quote will print perfectly on your home printer. A matt photo paper would be lovely, or even plain white card.

Fabulous hard boiled magazine, the type all the 'Film Noir' genre films were based on ... Humphrey Bogart, Edward G Robinson, James Cagney et al ...


These little magazines are dated 1940s and 1950s - and most of the hints are still applicable today. I love these old magazines as they give a real window into what life was like at the time.

As always, click for full size, then right-click and save to your own computer. Have fun!
