Define Your Life



Okey, Dokey, this is another attempt at some vintage, after looking at some other art work, and being influenced by The Funkie Junkie lately, I may be getting closer. I'm not hopping on the sewing machine--yet--I try not to rule things out completely.
This week at Tuesday Taggers their sponsor is Crafty Individuals, click on the link and check out a neat site, they've got some great video tutorials and you can add to your stash while you're there.
 I know if Sue at 52-Card Pickup searches for her new career with exuberance she'll find her nitch.

Wow, Bev, lovely vintage work! I'm thrilled to be an inspiration to you. It's definitely a genre that takes practice so if you like it, just keep working away at it. I had to laugh at your comment that you weren't hopping on the sewing machine because I once remember saying with great conviction that I would never sew on my cards!! I have a tutorial on making vintage cards that I put together for Sugar Creek Hollow. I'm not sure when they are releasing it - thought it was going to be up there yesterday, but it's not there yet. But watch for it as you may be able to pick up a tip or two.

So happy to see that you joined in the fun with pins, lace and pearls with the Creative Inspiration gang this week.

Hugs,
Linda
