Thank goodness the fireworks are over! Don't get me wrong. I like the big show fireworks that our community puts on. It's the neighborhood ones that I can do without. They start up to a week before the 4th and don't stop until days afterward. And I actually wouldn't mind those if the noise would stop at a decent time. But midnight and later is too late for us.
A friend and I went to a local scrapbook store yesterday. We needed to get paper. We were running low. LOL!! Ok, so we didn't really *need* paper we just couldn't stop ourselves from adding to our stash.
The store had some new product out. The new line from Margie Romney-Aslett. Authentique.
So pretty. I love those tiny alphabet stickers. And I love, love, love The Girls' Paperie Vintage Whimsy papers. Some of the papers remind me of vintage wallpaper.
See what I mean? Love it. I just read that Girls' Paperie is going away. Margie is still going to design papers but don't know what yet. I'm sure it will be great but I will certainly miss The Girls' Paperie.
I seem to like all things vintage. Well except perhaps the old wringer washer. Ugh! If I had to wash clothes that way they wouldn't get done. Lots of admiration for the prior generations. They sure had it hard.
Anyway... so I made this little card for my sister recently.
She will be 60. So close to vintage :-) I love making those flowers from old sewing patterns. You just cut a bunch of circles. Dampen them a little bit and smoosh them. Let dry and fiddle with them a little, stick a brad in the center and voila! All done.
Until next time,
