Timeless Tuesday...Anything goes


In olden days a show of stockings was looked upon as something shocking now heaven knows...anything goes. Well ain't that the truth! Now it's how much can you show cause anything goes. Oh my what have we come to??? So with that in mind I am doing my "anything goes" with Flourishes calendar set using the rose which is a June flower and I said so what if I'm a month early cause this is an anything goes challenge. Just used some perky papers from a pack from K & Company and got out my Spellbinders die cuts and then stamped my rose and used my water colored pencils, added some ric-rac and a bright colored button. My birthday stamp is from the flag set and I just did a bit of curvature and viola I'm fini. Dig the French??
Hope you all had a fab Mother's Day. I was super surprised by DD with tickets to are you ready for this....Sugarland. I love this group and know it will be a blast as DD, myself, and my spunky GD Ellie are having a girl's nite out. Dinner (and of course I'll sneek in a Dirty Martini) and then the concert. Sounds like so much fun. Have a great week fellow bloggers. See you soon.
