Anniversary card....

Yesterday I spent time shopping at antique shops and flea markets. I was looking for things that I could use in my scrapbooks, vintage postcards, old books, lace dollies and stuff like that. When I got home I decided to use some of the great finds I found and make a card. This card I will give to my husband's parents for their anniversary. They will celebrate their 57th in May. I like how it turned out, though I am debating whether to change the flower. Now to work on a scrapbook for them, I plan on including pictures through-out their years together, and of course it will have a vintage distressed look to it. I will share that with you when I finish it.

Distressed scrapbook....

I have been busy working on my mini scrapbooks. It is so nice to actually be able to use them, and add those special photos of our precious Grandson. He makes such a cute model.

Finished projects...........

I know Christmas is passed, and in our has been after all what? 2 and a half months? Well I needed to share this Christmas journal with you. In the beginning of December I did well keeping up with it, but in the hectic days just before Christmas, I didn't have time to work on it, parties, retirement, cooking, shopping, one thing led to another, and before you knew it, Christmas is over, the last of the decorations are put away, and the last thing I want to even think about is Christmas. Well today, I came across my journal rummaging through my craft room and as I was blowing dust off the book, I decided I really need to finish this. So that is what I did today. Yes, Karen does finish projects....every once in a while.
