I've said it before and I'll say it's always fun working with bright fun colors and patterns, but Vintage just feels like home to me! I've been working on classe kits for days, so today I had a little vintage fun. All of these were make with
Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage Beautiful double sided cardstock papers.
The cone die is from AccuCut. It's (Jumbo-Cone CN200J) Super Easy... one cut, and your done.The holes for the ribbons are even cut for you.

Check out these NEW stamps from Crafty Secrets. I just knew I was going to love that ornate one with the bird and the basket.. so I was dying to give it a try. I was right... I LOVE it! lol

Of course I spritzed all the cones with "Iridescent Gold" Glimmer Mist". Ooh la la!

You can check out all the Clear ART stamps from Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage HERE

I had a fun surprise yesterday, I was tagged my .. oh so talented blog friend Karla, from Karla's Cottage. She put a whole new spin on tagging. She actually make everyone she tagged an actual tag. I love mine! Check them out...they are gorgeous! Karla, is an artist in so many different forms, and her blog it's self is like a magazine subscription! Seriously...check it out! Thanks Karla! (I'll be thinking on my tags)
The sun is finally starting to shine here today, after lots of cloudy gloomy days. The pooches will be relieved. They have been STRESSED , with all the thunder and lightening the last few days. My poor little Molly has just sits by my feet when I'm at the computer , and SHAKES! (all 60+ lb's of her) ... poor little thing. lol
