I recently bought some Graphics 45 paper and was compelled to use it. So, I made these vintage cards yesterday and had a great time doing it!! The design is the same on both cards, I just used a different image. I made the rosette flower and the flower with the black and white dots myself. I found this lace ribbon at JoAnns and the frames for the images are Maya Road. Let me know what you think. Mel

I was having a hard time getting around with the cast on my foot so I went to Dallas for 2 weeks so my sister could help me. While I was there we made a canvas and this is my Tim Holtz inspired canvas. I got to use several mediums, paper, paint rub ons, and stamps. Let me know what you think. Mel
I made these journals to give as gifts. The "Beauty" Journal was made with some American Crafts Valentines paper that I have had forever. I used a new Magnolia stamp that I ordered last month. The other journal was made with some We R Memory Keepers paper from the "Tiffanys" collection. Very basic but cute.
Just an update......I finally got to a good orthopaedic doctor. I've been in a fiberglass cast since March 24th, but hope to come out of it sometime later this week! Then I will be wearing a foot/ankle brace for about 5 months. Hopefully, this will be just what I need to get me back on my feet and walking again. Using a walker and wheelchair is really making me feel old!!
Anyway, I have been busy the past few weeks. Been making some gifts for friends. I just love Graphics 45 paper and I made this journal for a guy friend of mine. I was trying to be masculine but still try to make a nice journal for him.
Let me know what you think.

Hi everyone, I can't believe it has been so long since I posted.
I looked at my calendar for the next few months and realized that I needed some birthday cards......and fast. I got the idea for this card from Jenny Groop and thought it was cute. Let me know what you think. Mel
