I Love Vintage

Good Morning!!! So glad that you could stop by my blog and see some more of my humble attempts at making cards. I see cards that so many of you make and just drool. Went shopping yesterday to get the thing that I am making for Thanksgiving. We are going to our middle son and our daughter in love home. Our youngest will be there also. Our oldest son and his girlfriend will be here on Dec 8th. We haven't seen him for a year and a half when my husband had triple by pass surgery. We are so excited that we will all be together for a few days during the holiday season. This card is on Stampin Up old olive CS. DP from a scrap pack from Hobby Lobby. Buttons from a garage sale. Peeloffs from the UK. Picture I'm not sure where I got it but it is one of my favorites.

This card is on Stampin Up CS and elements from their hodgepodge hardware in antique brass that is discontinued. Flowers from JoAnn's Fabrics. Ribbon from Dollar Tree and picture from public domain.
I just love anything vintage maybe because I am too!!! Isn't it anything over 25 years old. I guess that is in a car LOL!!!
Hope everyone has a great day and a Happy Thanksgiving.

Tis the Season

Today is a beautiful sunny morning here in the Midwest. Yesterday it was cold and raining but the sun is shining today. Starting to make plans for Thanksgiving. How about you? We usually put our tree up Thanksgiving day after all the festivities especially when the boys were home. When we lived in the Bay area we would go to Pier 39 for the lighting of the Christmas Tree which started the Christmas Season. I really love this time of year. So I have a couple more cards to share with you today

The card is kraft paper cards that my husband got at a garage sale for me. Santa stamped on Whisper white card stock,matted on black CS. Stamp and CS are both from Stampin Up Ribbon and buttons are from Walmart.

This card is on Baja Breeze, matted on DP from Hobby Lobby. Snowman is stamped on Whisper white and colored with markers all from Stamping Up. The Matting behind the Snowman is a hologram paper made at a company I used to work for. Ribbon and snowflake is from Dollar Tree.

Have a great day.

Shaker Card

Card made out of Stampin Up Whisper white CS. Stamped with Stampin Up stamps. Colored with watercolors. Peeloffs from the UK and I don't know where I got the ribbon. This is my first shaker card and it was fun to make. Use a little to much glitter but that's one of my faults I LOVE`GLITTER. We have had a very exciting week full of great news but not able to share here as of yet. Hope everyone has a great day
