 Hello everyone,

Just wanted to start off by saying thank you, for all your lovely comments, here and on Facebook, I really, really appreciate them all and so glad you put up with me in my crazy world..

So onto todays project, I had an urge to make a couple of vintage style cards a few weeks ago because I was tidying up my trays along the top of my cubes that sit on the top of my desk, and found an envelope of printed pictures and just had to stop and play..

This is number one...

This sweet lady is so very pretty and needed to be wrapped in peach..

The bow adds huge dimension not too much trouble to make a box this size..Pinky
can help out there, she makes boxes, all different sizes and has videos too..

The lace was from my stash with the pearls on it, flowers also, just found random peach and orange flowers and they all played nicely together..

The bow has a wire edge to it, this was my last bit and the store I used to get it from has closed down, what  a shame.

There's a close up of the lace..came from same store.

The black and white stripe paper in the background from MFT, topped with the butterfly papers from DCWV the Mariposa Matstack, had it for YEARS and never use it as I made square cards and it didn't fit!![Duh!]

And there she is all beautiful and peachy..

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your lovely comments..

 I'm off out this morning to clean my Sons house, then to get some shopping done and having them all over tonight for dinner..roast pork and all the Great grandson Hadley[3] said the other night while we were out, and pineapple, not forget my pineapple..gosh, they have great memories..

See you tomorrow..
