Finally...... some cards to show

Coffee of the Day - Maple Vanilla

Phew! it has taken me forever and a day to get the scanner configured to Dave's computer, but have finally somewhat mastered the task. I was getting to the 'sweating bullets' point, I tell you what! I have been busy crafting away for the big Shady Tree Studio release next week, and really didn't know what I was going to do if I couldn't post any pix for all of you. I had resorted to my shaky picture taking skills, which leave a lot to be desired, so 'hoorays of joy' were heard throughout the land when the scanner & computer got in sync! ;)

so without further adieu, here are several cards featuring images from Nicecrane Designs. I really enjoy Ignacio's vintage work!

The first card uses paper from K & Co and the line. I added some vintage lace & buttons, a ticket that was stamped, sprayed with walnut ink as well as frost shimmer spray, a baby Prima rose and pretty pearl floral pin. fairly simple, but I like the vintage look.

The next card I made to send off to Tyler at school. it just seemed the perfect sentiment to add to this adorable little kitten and mouse image! papers are Basic Grey Pyrus, big gorgeous button is again from my vintage stash, and isn't that burlap ric rac fabby? hopefully it will keep hubby from noticing the blue bow on the side.... well at least it is a BLUE bow..... and there is manly burlap on the card! grins! but the card really just needed that extra little bit of color and texture.... REALLY! tee hee! speaking of blue - Mick and David painted our upstairs hallway that same shade of blue as is in the paper. isn't it yummy? it looks beautiful and oh, so soothing with the white ceiling and baseboard trim.

everyone have a wonderful day, and I will see you back in a day or so! love ya!
p.s. I just hopped over to the Shady Tree blog and noticed that Nancy has a great little contest going on. leave a comment for a chance at winning the ENTIRE new release!
