You Cured Yet?

Going retro with some old stamp sets that are fun and recognizable.  My family has a quarterly card exchange and let me tell you, amazing cards are exchanged.  This quarter the theme was add a  critter.
Who could resist this punny sentiment with the sick little pig.

It seems doilies are my favorite embellishment lately.  I am also trying to thin my stash of paper, so I used what I had enough of on hand to  make ten of  the same card.

A Little Pickup!

A little pickup note for you!  I love this punny but cute saying that will make anyone smile and let them know you are thinking about them!

What could be better than a little vintage truck loaded with love?

Using color pencils and letting some of the white show through adds to the vintage feel.

Thanks for stopping by.

Retro Coffee

Ah, the orange and brown colors of years past!  That is what todays card is based on.  

Do you remember the vintage coffee pots?  My Grandma had one like this.

The Retro Circles ARTploration stencil was used in the background and Framed Coffee Pot is the front image.  Check out STAMPlorations to find them.

Start your day with coffee but make it a crafty day!

Oh Happy Day

Oh happy day when the first butterfly appears after the winter thaw.  The way they float so gracefully through the air and just once in a while land on you.

Using some patterned background paper, I used my favorite craftroom tool.  My heat embosser is probably the olderst tool I have.  It is used to speed the drying process, magically melt embossing powder and on cold days when I am embossing a shot of hot air warms me.
