Best and Finest

Coffee of the Day - Moon Pie

I was able to get a bit crafty yesterday, and it was truly delightful! this is what this hobby/passion is all about folks....the joy that comes from making something from the heart that will hopefully make someone's day just a little bit brighter. Sharing a bit of God's love with someone else. it's not about the blogs or the teams or the notoriety. it's about joy in creating, plain and simple.

I realized that I was getting under the wire to play along in the new Crafty Secrets monthly linky party. it's such a great party to join because everyone who plays gets a $6 credit to the store. I love their vintage images and papers! :)

Now this little fella is quite dapper.... his outfit might not quite match, but he thinks he looks fabulous, and that is what counts! I paired him with Basic Grey's Hipster paper collection, of course!, and a little tag remnant from American Eagle. because you bet your sweet bippy that is where this hip cat would be shopping if he could! tee hee! ribbon is May Arts and little metal clip is Basic Grey. buttons are from my stash.

on a side note, if you haven't watched the biographical movie of Charlie Chaplin starring Robert Downey, Jr., I thought it was quite good.
Have a most wonderful day!

Hi, Jennifer!
So glad there were not problems posting this time. I would have hated to miss this gem! The paper combo is fabulous and really feels like the "Chaplin" era!

Nice restraint on the embellishments and great coloring of the image. Nice composition and execution! Thanks so much for leaving this on our front porch here at 613 Avenue Create!'
