It's so beautiful today...I feel spring creeping in...the breeze whispers its name, the earth smells like growth, and my little one can't get enough of playing in the dirt!
A few months ago my friend Lisa Pace contacted me and asked if I would use some of her new stamps and share what I created with you. Of course, I jumped right on board as I have been quietly loving her Antiquated Collection from the time they were first released. She is so talented and her shabby, vintage style speaks to my heart.
This card uses her Society Lady stamp set, Melissa Frances stickers, My Mind's Eye and GCD Studios paper, a Maya Road chipboard button, Jenni Bowlin trinket pin, and a cameo found on etsy.
I stamped an image from the Society Lady set on a Melissa Frances sticker and created a simple tag to hang from one of my pincushions. These stamps speak for themselves and don't need much dressing up at all....love that about them. Sometimes Walmart has some generic supplies you can use for crafting.
The Pink Persimmon blog is filled with creative ideas using Lisa's new Antiquated Collection, so be sure to stop by and enjoy them. I'll have more to share with you tomorrow.
Next up, just a few things I finished up this week. I love busy, successful weeks.
And lastly...I wanted to share something very special to me, or shall I say someone. I have 3 beautiful brothers. I love them each so very much and am so thankful for my relationship with them. One of my older brothers, Scot ,has recently uncovered an amazing talent, that of photography and I am so happy for him because I know of the joy he feels when he does what he loves to do, take pictures.
Here are a few of his beautiful photos, but more can be found HERE on his Facebook page. He's amazing and I had to do a little bragging today. Love you Scot.
I love his barn photos! Old, weathered barns are some of the most beautiful things to happen across. These belong in a gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming don't you think?
P.S. Be sure to save a little time to stop by Emma's Paperie tomorrow as it's their 4th Birthday Bash! I have a little something special prepared for the event and there will be plenty of surprises, treats, and challenges!
