Rejoice

Hello blog friends,

Another hectic week is something of the past – time just flies or is it just me struggling to keep up! I am so glad it is Saturday so that I have the time to communicate with my blog friends again. Thanks for your visits the past week and all the kind comments that you left for me. I appreciate each one so much. Saturday is also the beginning of a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow. This week we want to see your easter cards with a vintage image. For my card I used a vintage angels image from Bumble Button Antique and Vintage Graphics. The innocent faces of the little angels were so beautiful – it just complimented the sentiment so well. The sentiment letters were cut with a Sizzix Sizzlits decorative strip die “Cute as a Button Alphabet”. I chose this word as sentiment because this is what Easter means to me.  I also used a new Spellbinders Borderabilities die “A2 Curved Borders One” for the decorative edge on the card. The tassels were for ages in my stash and I was delighted to see it matches so well with the angel wings and colours of the image. Hope to see your vintage or shabby card at the Sugar Creek Hollow Easter Challenge this week.

Challenges:

The image from Bumble Button and curved edge done with one of the Spellbinders Borderabilities curved border dies.  The beautiful lace was a gift from my dear friend Sharon.

    This is so beautiful! No, it is not just you Amelia, i am sure all we crafters feel there are not enough hours in a day. I love your layout, and those tassles just make it. I have some tassles too in my stash and i was wondering what to do with them! The colours are perefect and I love how you have mixed the white, ivory and cream together. It works a treat! Happy weekend to you, Judy x
