Boy, You Guys are a TOUGH Crowd!

Geez, when you guys don't like a card, it really shows! Two comments yesterday!? AND on top of that I lost a subscriber.........*sigh* I kept looking at that card and thinking, "Is it really THAT bad?" Or is everyone in blog land just busy enjoying their summer? Maybe that's it......yep, that's what I'm gonna tell myself........ : )

Anyway, here is a card that is really more "me." Very vintage. Pretty, soft colors, and it uses a sweet Crafty Secret's image from the Girlfriend's Creative Scraps. I used some vintage music paper, SU! and Papertrey Ink. I added some buttons and an organza ribbon.

Told ya it was more "me."

I finally got outside and cleaned my pool. The kids got to swim......finally! Although, I believe the weatherman is predicting more rain this week. Yea, cuz that's what we need.......more rain. (said in a VERY sarcastic tone.....)

Have a great Tuesday!!!!

Seattle's been sunny, girl....you know what that means....Summer is over on Friday so we're all outside!! ;-) Today's card is GEORGE-US and yesterday's card was great too... your brother will love the big 50 on the front and I bet Mickey would too if he were to get one! ;-) Just kidding about mickey- well he would love it, but you know what I mean...teasing you!!!

Another great vintage card Michele! Love the whole look here, music background, buttons and the darling image.

I did get some inspiration from your great card yesterday, even if I didn't come over and comment. I have to do a 50 card for one of my very best friends and I am definitely considering casing the 50 inside a star idea:)) Thanks!

Yes, today's card is more "you", but I also liked yesterday's card. I still haven't gotten our pool clean, so you're already ahead of the game:)

Boni Boutelle-Jones said...

ok so between the card yesterday (red and black) and today's i have to say I liked yesterday's better. Now I think today's card is very sweet and romantic but I LOVE bold colors and stand out statements! LOL Cuz that's just how I roll.

Sharon said...

What a beautiful card! I love the image, the musical background, and the buttons. I think blog land in general is just slower right now. I've noticed less people playing challenges too. Were all outside enjoying the beautiful weather. Just wait till it turns hot and humid: we'll all be back inside with our air conditioners crafting again. LOL!

Oh, it must be because it's summer that you didn't get as many commments. Your guy card is great!

Your vintage card is fantastic! You definitely have a way with the vintage look.

LOL We are all child wrestling at home! My kids have been out for 6 days and it feels like a year! ;) Just today I was able to make something crafty....

Love your card! That music in the bg is a gorgeous touch!

AWESOME! Love what you've done here Michele!!! Very creative ... (I'm "borrowing" this idea) LOL!!

Ruby said...

Hi Michele. I LOVE the card you were talking about. I thought it was great. I've been out of action a while so only just looking at blogs again and following. While I was out of action I ended up losing a follower, I was really upset so I know how you must have felt!! This design is fab too. Keep up the great work :o)
