Vintage Style

vintagestyle

Good morning!  Well, it’s back to work today after an extra long weekend…as much as I love them, it’s hard to get back into the swing of things.  Now it’s the short, busy stretch to the summer!  Today’s card is for this week’s CR84FN colour challenge.  I couldn’t resist the purples with kraft…totally yummy!  I also wanted to use some of my favourite things lately…button cards, corrugated butterfly (I hope Starbucks is not noticing I’m taking 2 sleeves when I visit!! lol), and doilies…okay, funny little story about this card.  I go to take the picture and the large white doily starts coming apart.  It was actually 4 doilies stuck together!! BONUS!!  Although it was tricky pulling them off and not ripping some paper or my beloved button card!  Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting :)

I have done that with the doilies before too. I don't know if they are supposed to be like that or what, but there is always a bunch of them stuck together. I love the cute button card and sweet little butterfly. Thanks so much for playing with us at CR84FN! :)

I have a girlfriend who would drool to get a card with so much purple on it as it is her favorite colour! Darling DPs and of course, I'm loving the butterfly :) What a fun bonus on the doily. Hope today wasn't too tough of a restart! Know it gets crazy from here to the end of the year!
