Fun & Simple

Hello, everyone!

I’ve got a couple of fun and simple cards to share with you today!

First of all, a card with a bit of farmer’s market/county fair flair to it…I loved the colors of the beautiful paper, and the country-style vintage accents like the milk cap & bingo marker were so much fun to use!  A tag from the Brown Twirly Twine kit added the perfect little sentiment–short & sweet!

And the women in this fabulous vintage photo? Two of my great-grandmothers!  They lived near each other in a small, western town in the early part of the last century, and were best friends since they were teenagers…wasn’t it wonderful of their kids to marry each other?!

A fun little card to send to a creative friend…a bit of Pink Twirly Twine serves as a garland at the top. I love this “Mother” paper doll from the “Family Fun” kit–and pieces from “Dimestore Vogue”  and the vintage buckle were the perfect addition!

But my favorite thing of all?  The vintage pin strip!  As soon as I saw it I knew it needed to be a border for something–and here it is!
