Vintage Birthday Card

Hello!  I'm so glad you are here!  It's time for a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts and this time we are hosted by Sue.  She has challenged us to make a Vintage Guy Card.  No clean, crisp cards, thank you!  Let's get inky!

Now cards for guys are a challenge for me, but add vintage to it and I'm really having to get to work!  But here's what I came up with:

Not too bad, I suppose.... ;p

Patterned cardstock - Paper Loft
Sentiment stamps - Fiskars
Tag - Winter Woodland (I think....it has been laying on my worktable waiting to be used for quite awhile)
Rope - recycled from a package received
Stickers - Rebekah Sower
Key - one of the many found when we cleared out Dad's house 
Distress Inks - Tim Holz

This was really a fun project, once I got started.  So come on over to My Sheri Crafts and join in the fun and get inky!

Cardz TV - birthday
Open Minded Crafting Fun - monochrome
Really Reasonable Ribbon - one for the boys

"Roses Are Red, Dear, Violets Are Blue..."

"Angels in Heaven, know I love you.  Know I love you dear, know I love you.  Angels in Heaven know I love you!"  Did you know that is the 2nd verse of "Down In The Valley"?  I think I learned it when I was a kid but had forgotten it.  When I think of it now, in my head I hear that great big prisoner in the movie "Green Mile" (I think) singing it.  He had a beautiful voice and that was such a touching scene. 

Anyway......it's Tuesday Throwdown day!  Our theme is "Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue" and we are sponsored by Simply B Stamps.    Boy!  She has some awesome stuff!  I was honored to get to use her "My Funky Valentine Betty" and here's what I created:

 I did a lot of practicing on this girl before I got her colored good enough to use!  I colored 3 images before I got the clothes right and 2 more trying to get the hair right!  But in the end, I'm very happy with this card!

What are Little Girls made of????

Hello and Happy Saturday!  I hope you had a good week and are thoroughly enjoying your weekend.  It's time for a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts and we are hosted by Sandy.  She asked us to add at least one heart to our card/project.

 I used a sentiment from Bugaboo and simply colored the hearts then mounted it onto a Spellbinders cut.  Back in the summer I bought a Sew Crafty Mini  and finally decided to try it out.  Well.....after I broke the needle, replaced it and inserted it wrong, downloaded the instructions and fixed my error, I finally got a little stitching done on this card! (and then covered up most of it!) But I did stitch the lace on the bottom and you can still see most of the stitching across the top.  ;-)  

These paper flowers from Creative Memories really add a lot of dimension along with the lace from my stash and ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Scraps and another paper flower on the inside finish this one.  Hmmmm.....NOW I see that I should have stamped "Congratulations" on the inside, so imagine that in there, okay?  It'll be there by the time this post goes live! LOL

Come on over the My Sheri Crafts and join in the fun!  Maybe you can snag one of our new "Ooh-La-La" buttons!  

Thanks for checking in today!
