Going Vintage....

Well, for those of you staying up late worrying about my poor hubby......( a wee bit of sarcasm there! : ) He is doing great! As a matter of fact, he says he feels much better now that the tooth is gone. Now he has to get a root canal on his other back molar. He is really jumping up and down over that one! (again........sarcasm..... : ) Yesterday I was off the computer the whole day....can you believe it? I tutored in the morning and then was asked to go to lunch with two of my very good friends/coworkers. The three of us headed to TJ Max for some shopping. 3 hours we were in that darn store! We had such a great time together! Kyle is at his Gram's, and hubby was out to dinner with an old boss, so that just left Cort and me. She and I had dinner, took an hour long walk around the neighborhood, and then swam until 7:30 PM. I have been diligently working on some thank you's for Cort's friends but have yet to finish them! So that is my story.........

On to my card! I used Crafty Secret's Garden Scraps for the main image. The background was done with Spellbinder's Impressibilities and Glimmer Mist. I didn't want the background competing with my image so I added a layer of cream cardstock. I pierced it, inked it, and distressed it. For my finishing touches I added a paper key, ribbon, Prima flower, and a few pretty stick pins.


I am hoping to catch up on some of my blog reading this week.......as I feel very behind lately!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
