♥ hello friend ♥

♥♥♥ For today's Simon Says Stamp post, please scroll down! Thank you! ♥♥♥

Hello friend.

Stopping in with a shabby chic card for ya! Here is a fun card I made with some beautiful Farmhouse papers by October Afternoon. Love these papers! That beautiful silhouette image is from The Graphics Fairy.


I also used some vintage trim, lace, buttons, mini roses, wooden spool, glitter, thread and a Jenni Bowlin stick pin. All on a kraft cardstock base.

I used the fabulous sketch over at Totally Papercrafts for this card.

And I was also inspire to make this by this week's City Crafter Challenge, Back to Black. It is to use a black silhouette image on your card.

And also this week's challenge at The Kraft Journal is to use your favorite colors. Love kraft, cream, pink and blue together!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I really appreciate all your sweet comments! Don't forgot to check back in on the 18th! It's my 40th Birthday! And I'll be celebrating it all with you with another BIG giveaway!

Bye for now friend!
