Friday Challenge....Vintage


Today's challenge @ notimetostamp is to use a vintage theme. Well it sums me up to a tee...not to boast or anything but Mr. Webster's definition is... characterized by excellence, maturity, and enduring appeal. Now doesn't that just sum this old broad up perfectly?? It can also mean old and outmoded but I'm going with defi # 1. This was a very easy card as I used some Crafty Secret's Cotton Scraps, my oval Nesties a bit of pretty ribbon from my boy pal Mike and some sweet matching pearls. My little thank you is from Flourishes. I feel "vintage" at this stage in my life; however, when you think about it I also feel wiser and more appreciative of what life is all about. So you see getting old is not all that bad if you keep a good attitude. My only complaint is where are all those old men who could take me to dinner or out for a beer? I'll just keep myself moving and start having some fun with my old lady friends. And by the way...where are all my "peeps" this year??? I do need help with my Valentine drive so if you can spare you time and talent please join in.

GORGEOUS card, Pat
I just love everything about it, especially the vintage look.
Not too sure about the Valentines this year, but I will see what I can do....do I need to put them in envelopes?
