Handmade With Love......

Good morning! I have a card to share with you that I created just for fun! It doesn't happen often.....the creating just for fun thing.....but every now and then I am able to squeak one out! I couldn't resist purchasing this new stamp by Papertrey Ink. It is sooooo up my alley! I inked it with a peachy Colorbox Ink and sprinkled clear embossing powder on to set it. I added glittered buttons, a bit of seam binding, and a Teresa Collins stick pin. I paired that with some October Afternoon paper and a doily to finish it off. I love all of its vintagey, glittery goodness!

OH! and I inked and glittered this tiny little wooden bobbin! Love these little things!



My husband's best friend got married over the weekend......and you'd swear we were the ones getting married.....or better yet.....going to prom or something! I bought a new dress for the occasion and he insisted he buy a shirt and tie to match. We caught slack about it all night! But really? I thought it was kind of sweet. So here we are......looking all "Prom" like! (Of course add some wrinkles and a few pounds!; )
Thank you for stopping by! Your visits are sooooo appreciated!!!! : )

Oh my gosh...I am SO in love with this! And funny because I felt the same way with this set...I really splurged big time (for me at least) on some new sets from PTI.
But just so loving what you've done with this!

Your card manages to include all my favourites: glitter, buttons, a doily...sigh. Sometimes those just for fun creations are the best :)
