Into the Sunset

Wow - the last few weeks have been busy.....work, the holiday, shopping, wrapping. all so my daughter and I can get to the ranch and ride for a week.  Made this card to take to a friend - it has that southwestern cowboy look I was going for.  The ribbon was sent to me by a friend in the Rockford area and the stamps are from Marks Finest Paper.  Gave a little distressing to the edge for that vintage look.

Nostalgic Santa

The craft show I participated in is finally over and I had time to go out and play today with my friend Pat. We visited one of our favorite paper spots in Kirkwood where they had on display beautiful old postcards made into posters as well as in smaller form on cardstock.   I was inspired by their display to do this card.  It is not stamped - it instead has a copy of a postcard, that I made smaller, that belonged to my grandmother.  (From what I can tell in checking the internet, card images like this before 1923 are public domain)  I embossed the red cs with my CB and used a little gold behind the image with a few gold embellishments in the corners.  I have a few other postcards that she saved that I hope to make some more cards with - The card gives me a warm fuzzy feeling when I look at it.
