british music night

what a great night on TCM  right now singing along with the Beatles in a Hards Days Night and then 2 Dave Clark 5 movies  and then 2 Herman's Hermits movies!!!!  The films were kind of cheesy but the music is worth it!  How many groups out today will the people be able to sing the words to their songs almost 40  some years later, not to many. Not showing my age too bad now am I  hahahahaha

Early Cards

I found some pictures of some early cards I have made.  I really liked Flower Soft and in fact the picture of the wagon is on the Flower Soft web site gallery , of course it was a few years ago when the product first came out.  Thought I would post them here. My style was changing to a more vintage style which is my favorite!  The last picture is a reminder of last spring and hopefully our house will look like that again this spring, winter has been here long enough.

swap card

Here are some shots of a card I did for a swap I am in via littlepaperstudio.  The theme was geometric and green.  Hope my partner likes it.  Used Graphic 45 paper, a Jolees embellishments, a sizzix embossing folder.  Making an envelope to match.   Will have more time to post now as Monday the 31st was my retirement day from work.  Gonna take a month off and then look for a part time job.  Cannot imagine not working , have been doing so for 46 years.

New Card

Here is a new card I tried last weekend, new to me anyway, a card in a box.  I watched a video by stampint on you tube and followed her directions.  I used Graphic 45 baby paper(fussy cut on the sides) Crafty Secrets stickers, Jolees 3D stickers and co'ordinations paper.  I also did the frame using a Michael's frame, Daisy D paper(no longer available, used to be my favorite paper) Jolees 3D stickers, Soft Spoken embellishments, Stickles, some lace I have had forever.  I did these for a friend of mine whose daughter just had a baby.  It was fun!
