In Murfreesboro, TN

Hi Stampers,
Visiting my little granddaughter in TN for a few days but I did bring the lap top so I could continue to post card samples for you.

We arrived in the rain yesterday but today looks like it is going to be beautiful.  Headed out to see the Nashville Sound play today.  I bet you thought we were going to hear some country music right?  Wrong!  Nashville Sound is a baseball team.  You know we can't go anywhere without Jack getting his baseball fix.

Enjoying our family.  More tomorrow!  Hugs, Patti

Happy Birthday Doily

I didn't want the doily to overpower the card so I cut 1/4 of it off at the top so the ribbon could share the spotlight. LOL  I think these little pink rhinestones are so cute but you can only get them as part of the designer printed Kit on page 18 of the mini, which BTW, ends on April 30th.  If you want them, order now.

Supplies: Stamp Set;  Happiest Birthday Wishes (hostess set) 122617.  Paper; Melon Mambo 115320, Confetti White 102028, White White 100730,  Letters to Santa DSP 122349.  Inks; Early Expresso 119670.  Embellishments; Big Shot 113439, Paper Doily Sizzlits Die 125592, 1 3/4" Circle Punch 119850, 1" circle punch 119868, Scallop Circle Punch 119854, Stampin' Dimensionals 104430, 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain ribbon 125057, Designer Printer Kit Rhinestones 125410.

Twitterpated Vintage

My favorite card to create is a vintage type card.  I love antiques and old things and I guess that is why I gravitate towards the vintage technique.  The flower is not stamped but from the DSP.  I did used quite a bit of embellishments on this card.  I sponged soft suede on the torned edges to resemble burnt paper.
