Vintage Findings

We arrived back from our honeymoon a couple of days ago and I am happy to be back to our home, but yet sad that it all went so quickly. The ceremony was lovely and turned out just as we had planned. All the planning and poof - it's all over in a blink. We all enjoyed ourselves - it was the most perfect evening with all our family and friends that mean so much to us.

One of the many fun things we did on our honeymoon was explore all these quaint little towns and the treasures they held in their antique shops. I found so many goodies that you will see over time in each of the cards that I make. I found, papers, cards, tickets, ribbons, buttons, lace, milk caps and many other treasures. My husband was so patient and even up to the day we drove home - which should have only taken 5 hours the most - ended up to be a 9 hour drive! Oh, I just love him so! :)

The card featured above has two of my vintage findings - the ribbon and the train ticket stub behind the leaves. It's good to be back - have a great weekend! Cathy xx :)

Madison - 2S4U - Laura's Sketch 36

It's hard to this time next week, I will be married to the love of my life. Although, we have been together for over 12 years, our love for one another grows stronger each day. I can say without a doubt that he is my best friend and life without him would never be the same. I promise to post pictures of our special day when we return from our "honeymoon".

This card is so soft and beautiful, I'm secretly hoping that no one purchases it! It was made with several patterns of coordinating paper, Martha Stewart border punch, vintage inspired image, paper flower by Prima, rhinestone flourish, a satin leaf that I used Tattered Angels spray, ink, and ribbon. I hope you like it! :)

I think this will be my last post for a couple of weeks or until we return sure to check back for our wedding day photo's. Have a wonderful weekend, Cathy xx :)

World Card Making Day

Today is World Card Making Day - and to start my day I decided to organize my scrap room once again. It's amazing to see just how much I have that I haven't used! I have enough paper, punches, ribbon, buttons, misc. embellishments to open my own scrap store! It is addictive....isn't it?

I decided to enter this card for a challenge at SplitCoastStampers. It was one of many cards that I have created using products from Crafty Secrets. I just love vintage and this certainly has a vintage-feel to it. The vintage-inspired image is from Crafty Secrets, papers from Melissa Frances along with other misc. paper, decorative paper punch and glitter - Martha Stewart, paper flowers from Prima, pearl adhesives and button, chipboard embellishment and Glimmer Mist - Tattered Angels, sentiment Cosmo Cricket along with pretty pink twill.

I hope all you cardmakers had a wonderful day doing what we all like to - create! Thanks for looking and have a great weekend - Cathy xx :)
