I've been busy creating vintage inspired cards, and thought I would share some of them with you today.
I've not purchased cards in years, it's more fun to make them, I think!
I began with blank cards which I picked up at Michael's. Then I assembled the goods: vintage sheet music, wonderfully crinkly seam binding, glue sticks, glitter glue, and some gorgeous images from
The Graphics Fairy. The Frenchy birds and nest, above, is one of my all time favorites!
Of course I am always drawn to lovely floral images, like this pretty rose!
Isn't this vintage image of a French ad for chocolate amazing?
Oooh, la, la! You know how much I love all things French, so of course I had to make a bunch of cards using this great Eiffel Tower print!
Flowers for you!
I love the cute pair of little fairies, below. Such wonderful colors!
Ok, this is another favorite bird image (I think I say they are all favorites, it's hard to pick just one!!).
So I guess it's safe to say that my signature look for the cards I create are glitter (the more, the better!), sheet music, and crinkly seam binding!
The next few photos I snapped yesterday when hubby and I took a little afternoon trip to the town of Thomasville, which is about an hour from where we are staying.
Not sure what hubby is looking at in the photo below, he sure wasn't looking at the camera!!
Guess what that swag is made of? Cotton! Straight from the field cotton! Wish I had gotten a close up shot. Yep, we are in cotton country down here, and have seen these swags in several shops.
We had the most delicious lunch at this cute little cafe, below, called Jonah's.
We split a mahi mahi sandwich, it was one of the best we've ever had! And then we were feeling a bit decadent and also split a piece of house made key lime pie. I'm really picky about my desserts (I won't eat it if it's not home made!), and I must say this was the best I'd ever had!
The town itself was so cute, full of colorful buildings like the one below, dating from circa 1880's.
That's it for today. Hope you all are having a great week so far. If you are experiencing winter storms that are taking over much of the country, stay safe and snug!!
