Good Monday Afternoon Everyone!
Yep ... it's my 2nd post of the day but I just couldn't help myself!
There are a couple of challenges that really caught my eye and I just HAD to play along.
The challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is SWEETHEARTS ... and the challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow is FIBRES & TEXTURES.
If you know me at all, you know I LOVE anything Vintage!
So, these 2 challenges really called out to me!
Just today I purchased a paper pack by The Paper Studio called Harper's Boutique (50% off at Hobby Lobby). The papers are all black & white with a vintage flair! Perfect! So,THAT was my starting point!
I knew I had some old vintage photos and was lucky enough to have this lovely couple riding an old vintage bicycle that fit my creation idea perfectly. Now mind you ... I'm not sure if they were actually sweethearts ... if you look closely, she has a very grumpy look on her face ... but there again, I don't think the ladies smiled much 'back in the day!'
What fun I had adding a fiber bow and feathers to my card.
Something I never think to do but LOVE the outcome ...
and it was so fitting for that time period!
A touch of faux doodle stitching helped to bring attention as well!
Here are a few additional challenges:
My Time to Craft - All About Love
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Simply Create Too - Valentine's Day or Use Hearts
It's nearly dinner time ... guess I should start thinking what to prepare!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you've had a good start to your week!
As always . . .
