Are ya completely bored with me yet? I have really been in a vintagey kind of mood these days. Crafty Secrets fulfills that perfectly! I used DP by My Mind's Eye and Lasting Impressions. The snowflake border punch was by Martha Stewart. (Love this punch because it also embosses!) This little girl...yes, I think it is a girl...or is it a boy? Well in either case I colored "her" in with my Copics. I added white flock to her hat and coat. I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the ice. I added some vintage lace and an old buckle from my stash.
Had parent conferences tonight....went rather well. No crazy parents this year! Love to hear that students "love" being in my class. It always makes me feel good about the profession I chose! Well, off to bed....Night!

I am always on the lookout for images that are appropriate for men. And since all the men in my life love to golf....I thought this was a perfect stamp! The image is from Inky Antics. I purchased it from Eclectic Paperie. I actually made this card for my hubby's boss for his birthday....yea no pressure there! He is the golf club champion at his country club. So the man reeeallly likes golf!
I paper pieced his shorts and decided with the bright colors I better leave his shirt white. I colored him in with my Copics. The paper is by Reminise. And notice, no ribbon! That was really hard for me.....so instead I added the Happy Birthday sentiment from Lizzy Ann Designs. I used an epoxy circle over it. Which by the way, have turned yellow with age. Yep, probably had these babies for about 7 or 8 years....which is why we all need to STOP hoarding those supplies! They DO expire!!! In my case the yellow worked out because it matched the paper! LOL!!
End result? Brian's boss loved the card! "Put one on the board.......YESSSSSS!"

Does anyone know the proper spelling for these Victorian Coronets (or is is cornet?)???? Well is doesn't matter because I am loving them! My kitchen is a cranberry red so I thought this would go perfectly! I used the Cotton scraps from Crafty Secrets as the main image. I used buttons, Spanish moss, a Heidi Swapp Ghost snowflake covered in gold glitter, pine cones, an ornament, vintage lace, rhinestones, a Making Memories epoxy tag, and some floral picks.
