Challenge 24 - Vintage (or at least looks like it)

Happy happy Tuesday dear friends - it's time for another challenge with us at Tuesday Alchemy.  This week our challenge is all about "vintage" or at least it looks like it is vintage.  As some of you already know I love love love vintage.  Makes me smile smile smile.

I created this altered clipboard with a vintage Paris Eiffel Tower theme.  I painted the metal on the clipboard with paint (but I sanded it first).  I wanted it to look really old and worn out.  I found some vintage looking cardstock and just started tearing it in big pieces.  Adhered it to the clipboard and inked all the edges with ink.  Added some brown ribbon, a vintage button and didn't seal this one with any sealant.  I wanted to keep it the way I made it.   I hope you like it and it inspires you to create something of your own.

I also hope you check out all the design teams projects for this challenge - there are amazing!!  Jump in and join us this week and I am really looking forward to seeing what you create.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Flonz, who will be giving one lucky crafter a $20 Store Voucher - WooHoo!!!  But that's not all . . Leo, Flonz's owner, will be picking his favorite creation & that crafter will win a $20 Store Voucher as well!  All the information is listed on our Tuesday Alchemy Blog.

Cupcake and a Celebration

Hello Lovely Ladies
I hope your weekend has been fabulous thus far.  It's been sunny here with a cool breeze.  It's been a welcome relief from all the cold and rainy days.   Today I am sharing a card I made in celebration of a one year anniversary for Leigh S-B Designs.  She created this cute cupcake image in celebration as well as for a challenge of sorts. 
I created my heart shaped card and used lots of Washi tape to create the background.  I all used white Cardstock borders to help break up the color.  I colored the cupcake and the number ONE with Copic's. 
Here's the card I created:

Leigh congratulations on your first year anniversary.  I hope you have many more.  Your images are wonderful and fun to color.

Thanks for stopping by.  It always makes me smile

It's Going To Be A Fabulous New Year

Hello My Lovelies
It seems I am always thrilled for the beginning of a new year. Time to put some things to rest and begin focusing on new dreams and goals.  I love pulling out my new 2018 planner and put it together and then filling up the pages, writing down my new dreams and goals as they pop into my brain.  Helps me stay more focused rather than feeling confused and lost. Plus there are some amazing new planners out there that make it fun and really pretty too.  My temporary move is behind me and hubby and I are feeling more settled.  My bronchitis and pneumonia are finally behind me and I couldn't be happier. 
I have decided to post my DT projects not only on my Hugs 4 The Heart Facebook group but coming back to begin posting here again as well. I hope you will come and visit me. I am also on Pinterest, Instagram and on Etsy.  I will be back tomorrow with all the links. My most exciting goal is get set up and doing lots of crafting videos too

Thanks for all your encouragement an…

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…
