Doing a Guest Spot over at Create with TLC

Howdy Peeps!

Thought you were done with me for today, didn't ya?! ;)

well I received a very kind email from Paulette over at Create with TLC asking if I would be interested in making something for her. any time she asks, I always jump up & say YES very loud! I so love her sentiments and vintage images! This wonderful 'Gentleman' is part of the new Fall club that is currently going on.


I had received a sample pack of Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 papers from an Etsy seller, but hadn't yet used any of them. this seemed like the perfect opportunity! I glanced around blogland and found a great sketch over at Willow that seemed to suit also, so off to craftyland I went! The mirror is actually covered in crystal effect while the letters are outlined with a black spica glitter pen. of course none of that shows in the scan, but when I lightly misted everything with my soft suede marker and SU! ink squirty tool, the red on the roping bled just a teensy bit. THAT shows in the scan...... go figure! I did mask the image while spritzing to help keep that area highlighted. the ticket is an actual vintage one. isn't that fun? clock faces are Making Memories. buttons are just some from an Etsy purchase.

do put Create with TLC in your favorites to check out every day. and just to let you know, there is a Design Team blog hop this coming Friday. I am really excited about that!

See you tomorrow! :)
