The mini stamp set we have for you this month is
My cards for the hop this week for the most part have been fairly CAS. I decided not to go that way with this set. I saw it and immediately thought VINTAGE COLLAGE. I stamped the "stamp" and cancellation onto a piece of brown cardstock. I paired it with a blue and brown dp. I purposely had the post card and the blue dp hang off over the edges of the card. The base is a cream colored cardstock. I then have a dark brown cardstock layer with a layer of vintage rose dp. The doily along with my hand quilled roses made from the pages of an encyclopedia, the pearls and amber jewels on a wire, and repurposed broken hair clip all give it that antique feel.
Here is a close up of the roses, pearls and amber jewels on the curled wire.
Here is a close up of the stamps and cancellation mark and the broken and repurposed hair clip. It has been sitting in my drawer of 'Junk' that I might use again someday. Well, today was the day.
Having an empty nest is harder than I ever imagined it would be. I still have my boys at home, but I miss both of my daughters who have grown and are out on their own. This card could be for either one because I do miss them. This is a photo of me with my daughters taken about a month ago on a rare happening that we were all together.
This beautiful song makes me think of them. I know it more about a man-woman love interest, but I imagine my girls when I hear it. Send me a song!!!!
