Okay Peeps! Time for something different - LOTS of baby cards happening here and you have been so patient and encouraging - THANK YOU! :0)
The Shabby Tea Room is hosting a Guy Card Challenge "Just For Dad" this week. I felt pretty stumped over this one for a looooooong time, but after all those baby pastels was really ready for something completely different! So here goes :0)
I started out with some paper that had an antique looking map drawn on it, and added a "library card".(A free download which Heather Nichols made available during one of PTI's releases. Sorry I can't remember the exact post ...)
I stamped the library card with some "old letter writing", a tree from Waltzingmouse (my hunkadorus' favourite stamp) and some postage style stamps.
The stitching around the card varies from a straight stitch to a zig-zag. The metal tag and spinners are from Tim Holtz.
The die cut flourish behind the library card is embossed, sanded and accented with a few details of gold foil.
The brad and eyelet are extra details for the eye to absorb!
(I popped in the book, candle and glasses when taking the photo because the kitchen sink didn't fit - wink! Heeee!)
So there it is :0) Thanks for popping in!
Anyone out in blog land who loves David Austin Roses? Golden Celebration is blooming just outside my front door - the scent is absolutely incredible - LOVE it! :0)
Have a glorious day!!
