SIP87 A Little Kindness

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  It's time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge!  And what a sweet challenge it is:  Kindness!
Image may contain: text

I haven't done a "vintage" card lately, and this set from Artistic Outpost has been sadly under-used, so I got it inky!  

The set is called Birds of a Feather, and it has a nice selections of vintage images!  I thought these little girls were sweet:

And it has a lovely German print background, interspersed with some egg images; I added the sentiment and the florals (same set), then stamped a couple of butterflies from Kinda Eclectic:

Because these little girls looked like best friends, I added a tag, some linen thread and a candy dot, then a layer of Graphic 45 DSP and some crochet trim and rickrack!

And finally, a sentiment also from Kinda Eclectic....because my sweet friend is indeed very kind!

This is also for the Sunday Stamps 146 sketch challenge, as well as the Double D Challenges, which is to use rickrack or zigzag!  Edited to add: This fits well for the Card Concept challenge this week, which is Vintage!

I hope you will play along with the Stamp Ink Paper team and share your creations with us this week! Can't wait to spread some kindness around!

Cassidy and Lamby are having quite a phone conversation:

I wonder what their conversation was about?  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

These darlings are dressed as my own mother did when she was a girl, LeAnne - so wonderful! gorgeous colors, and the rick-rack couldn't be more perfect!

I'm sure the conversation is directed on how nice our weather has been! Lamby & Cassidy can play in the sunshine which is unheard of in February! LOL This card is a beauty, LeAnne! I love the vintage image of the 2 girls, the paper and your stamped background! You always make the best vintage cards...ALWAYS! Love the sweet tag and the lace & rick rack trim as it adds so much to the card! Your friend is going to cherish this! TFS and have a wonderful day! :)

The rick rack and lace are perfect accents with the darling little girls! This is lovely LeAnne and your friend will treasure it. I think Lamby is telling the person on the other end that he and Cassidy are headed outside to play before winter comes baa-ck LOL!!

I'm late commenting today! I loved your card when I saw it. Your vintage cards can't be beat! Those images and sweet girls are gorgeous. I love the rick tack and lace, they're the perfect embellishments. This one should go in a frame!
