Happy Monday!! First things first. I posted yesterday that I had finally opened my Etsy Shop and thought I had put in a link - apparently it did not take and I did not notice it. I'm not going to bore you with all the details, but in attempting to put it into a separate area on my sidebar I got a error reading from blogger. So, here is my link for my Etsy Shop The Nest I have tested it and it does work, so I'm going to put it in my sidebar under Websites until I can get the other issue worked out.

And now on to more important things. I'm sure most of you know that I love anything vintage (have I told you enough times - lol) Anyway, I do, and this image has got to be one of my most favorite ones - I think I say that a lot - but it's true. It's so sweet and soft and so reminiscent of days gone by.

It's also a simple card to make, and goes quickly. Simply form a standard size top folded card from pink CS, cut out your chosen image, glue to a piece of creme CS and cut approximately 1/4" around the sides and top, leaving enough on the bottom to use the Martha Stewart decorative edge punch. Glue this to the pink CS - see the tiniest bit of pink showing through the holes??? Trim your image in Stickles. I've made a few of these cards, some using Stardust Stickles, some silver, and some in the Antique Linen Distressed Stickles my daughter gave me for Christmas. Thank you Sara. I LOVE it!! It's very vintage looking.

Have a wonderful day and try to spend at least a little time today doing what YOU love. Take Care,
