Vintage 365

365 Cards today says: "Create a card with vintage style." This is a card that Gloria did as the example for today, we were to "scraplift" something from it..... so here' goes.......

I decided I wanted to go with the 50"s era, and I love the old coffee posters! So.... after an hour or so of finding appropriate ones on the Internet, this is what I came up with... I loved how Gloria had her pictures overlapping one another and all at angels, so I took that element from her. Additionally I liked how she grouped her brads in 3"s.... so I scraplifted that too....

I sure hope that I get well soon, I'm pretty sure that this virus I have has totally messed with my card-making prowess..... ho huh... cough, cough, I think I better go get my millionth cup of hot tea doused with honey. someday I'll be normal... wait.... strike that! ;) ha ha ha!

Growing in Unity Day 1

Hello there Unity Crafters!!!!! Today marks my very first day in the Growing in Unity event.  Today I'm featuring a card that I made using the set {Jar Full of} Sweetness.  Those of you who know me, know that I'm completely addicted to apothecary jars and have lots of them filled with all sorts of candies on my countertop.  I adore them and i'll never stop collecting them.  So, when I saw this set, I knew I HAD TO HAVE it straight away!
I'm very new to making shaker cards but I thought it would be perfect to have the little sequins I purchased from Firefly Crafts inside the jars to make it look like little candies in there!

I also used a few of the flowers I purchased from Firefly Crafts as well, they are made by Wild Orchid and they are absolutely perfect!






I hope you enjoyed this card today and it inspired you to make something crafty! Surf the Unity site and find a cute stamp and get with it! he he he! See you all tomorrow!
Have a Crafty Day!

Getting Nerdy!

Good morning crafty people!
