Luv Vintage!

Hi all - another card to show you.  Used an image from a Velma swap (Hi Velma!)  a doily, vintage seam binding and scrap paper I had from Lost and Found by Minds Eye and DCWV The French Country Stack.
Thanks for stopping by and looking.......

It's Summertime!

Hi all - its too hot to go outside so am working on more cards for show coming up later this year.
Always have to have a doily and used an image from DCWV - Botanical Stack.
I attached a small tag behind the image.  I wanted a clear button to attach but couldn't
find any.  I wanted to decoupage sheet music on the back of the button.
So I decided to make buttons with a one inch punch!  I punched
out of sheet music and paint chips I had from the hardware store and I glued 
them all together.  Punched a couple of holes and  a little distress ink and twine and wa-la.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Time Flies

Hi all - I have been working on pencil drawings which I love to do.  All you need are pencils
paper and an eraser.  It's a medium that is easy to carry with you traveling.  And if you set it aside,
it is just waiting for you next time.  Doesn't dry out or take up a lot of room. And it's just paper!
Thanking for looking........

Just for You!

Hi all - It's extremely hot here! - perfect for indoor card making.  This was made with Recollection
and Prima papers.  The cute sweet paper was a tag from Velma from one of the swaps.  It looked
perfect with the other paper.  I used it as another place to put a tag.  The flower was made from rice paper that a friend gave me.  I punched out the petals with an one inch punch and glued to a backing.  I then spritzed it with Tsukineko Walnut  Ink "Cherry Blossom"  which gave it a delicate look.  I love making flowers and sometimes will make a batch of them while watching TV.  Added some antique lace and distressed the card around the edges.  Thanks for stopping by............
