Just a Girl in the Garden....

Coffee of the Day - Creme Brulee

Happy day to you! Hope it is truly glorious wherever in this big wide world you happen to be! :)

Wanted to show you the other happy card I made the other day - in my vintage style I love so very much. Used an image from ETC., an Etsy company that is truly faboo in my book! Owned by the amazing Julia Stainton, Becky Olsen, and Lisa Strahl. These women are each so talented on their own, but when you put them all together it is like an volcano of creativeness just erupting form the ground!!!! glorious indeed!!!! Here is a link to their blog so you can check it out.

Off to my card ~

I pulled out my new to me K & Co. papers, Classic K Charlotte. The border was so pretty that I didn't want to cover it up, so I made sure to offset the main image. Stamped a tag, added some fun vintage seam tape in a skrunchy kind of bow, and adhered it over this beauiful trim remnant I found at Wally World of all places. tossed on some vintage buttons from my wonderful Etsy stash and the card is done! oh yes, used that infamous ink squirty tool over both the tag and main image, which were also popped up on foam tape.

Don't forget to send a card to Jaimie if you can. It sure will mean a lot to her! and link it back to the main blog, Stamp Something... For Jaimie, for a chance to win a prize.

have a great day! :) love ya!
