Vintage Card. AND don't forget to scroll down for some "mini" blog candy....


My MIL informed me that I originally stated that I would be drawing for the "mini" blog candy on Monday, June 4th and then later stated I would draw today! Please forgive me, as I apparently have early memory loss! It is the end of the year for us teachers and life is a little hectic! So I will leave it till Monday! I just want to say that your comments have been the highlight of the week! I have literally laughed out loud at how creative some of your "begging and groveling" have been! Thanks for the giggles!!


This card was made from a new stamp I purchased awhile ago. The stamp is called Betsy from B Line Designs. I thought she was adorable with that coy look! I used paper that Archivers makes...it is called their spring line. I distressed it a bit with my chocolate ink. I used a button brad from Brenda Walton and some ribbon. I used my window punch for the sentiment. IT was one of those cards that just kinda came together!


Have a great weekend everyone! Thanks for visiting!
