This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

Something old, something new.....

something borrowed, something blue. Okay, I fibbed about the borrowed. I made this cute little card with two Stampin' Up! stamps. "Lace" background, and "Nice and Easy Notes", that is the old since they are both retired sets. The new and the blue is the Marina Mist cardstock and ink. Such a pretty blue! The ribbon is from SU too. Border was punched with the Scallop Edge punch. The image was colored with Copic markers.


I have another tonight. This one is in the vintage style, also made with a retired stamp, Garden Collage. The sentiment is from a current set, "For All You Do". I used Crumb Cake (Kraft) cardstock, Basic Black cardstock, the circle punches and Basic Black ink from Stampin' Up!. I also used some newsprint patterned paper, a vintage button, some distressing ink and teal ribbon from my scrapbooking stash. Thanks for visiting and for commenting!
