The images were from the CD that came with this book by this amazing woman, Sandra Evertson.
Between Birthdays and Valentines Day...there are a lot of card giving occasions. I have discovered that once you make a card for someone, the expectation to always make cards for that person is high! Even though I have 100's of rubber stamps (and I love them) my favorite cards are made using vintage images and funny sayings. This month I have had fun making both kinds.
First was Mimi's birthday. Her card had to be girly and "vintagy". The image is from Flickr I think but I can't find the link...I'll keep looking.
Bev celebrated her birthday on the 11th and I sent this card
I have had the book for a while and pulled it out to play with it. Amazing artwork and so much fun to use the images!
Then it was Margie's birthday, too. Margie is the owner of Stamp Fanci. There was no way I was going to stamp a card for the Mistress of Rubber Stamps, and Margie likes my vintage cards so I made this card
The little girl image is from Lisa's Altered Art. Her images her so much fun to use. She sells her art through her website and through Etsy. Some close up pictures...There was also a baby card to be made. (This will be given with the frame I posted about on Monday. The Mary Jane shoes were made using a Quickutx Revolution (4X4) die. I love them!)
This card was made because I bought the cakestand stamp, by Memory Box, at Stamp Fanci and had to try it out! The large scalloped border on this card was made using a Martha Stewart border punch...of course!
I will be back with some Valentine cards......and I haven't forgotten to post about my own Birthday.
My blog posts are either few and far between or so long they put you right to sleep. If you've read this far-thank you.
