Happy Monday, peeps! Phew, what a weekend….it took me all yesterday to recuperate from our wonderful day at Regionals in Baltimore! I think an inky gremlin came in and messed up my stamping area….I don’t remember leaving it that messy! And I know it wasn’t Cassidy! Anyway, here is our Merry Monday sketch for today:
As sometimes happens, I made a card but wasn’t really happy with it, so I made another! I found this adorable little vintage image in my “vintage” file folder, but I cannot find it on my computer (I lost some files when I got my new one)…..so I can’t tell you where it is from! Perhaps someone recognizes it! She sure is cute and I’d love to have her again:
Hence, there’s not much stamping…I found some Cosmo Cricket paper that matched, added some vintage MS glitter:
stamped the sentiment & snowflakes, then punched and matted them:
and added my sentiment on the inside:
This is also for the Festive Friday challenge, whose theme is to make a retro Christmas card!
And here’s the “loser” card:
A notecard sized-card, with some retro stickers from my stash and a wee bit of stamping and glitter!
I hope you can find some time to make a Christmas card and share it with us at Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper! You’ll be glad you started early, and we’ll be glad to see it! Check out all the other designers’ samples while you’re there!
I promised a couple of peeks from our Baltimore Regionals; here we are with Shawn who couldn’t make it (she’s the one on the STICK!):
Front row: Kathy, Shawn-on-a-stick, Alison and Penny; back row: Donna and me!
Here’s a closer pic of Alison, Shawn-on-a-stick and Penny!
And here’s an action photo of SHELLY….she gave us our free stamp set!
The day WAS a blur, but we had fun!
