'Bout time...

Been a while since I posted a new project. I was hit this week with a yucky cold bug that kept me in a sneezing fit. I'm hoping I'm at the tail end of this thing now. Fortunately, I was still able to get a project or two made during that time, including one for a future challenge that I will show you later. I will share the ones that can at this time.
This first one is for the Mojo Mocha Friday challenge on Cafe Mojo Challenges. We were to use either ribbon or lace and for this one I chose ribbon. The image is one of the many vintage images that I have. I really love vintage! I paper toled the bird and flowers and added glitter to the top layer. The edges have been distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.
On the inside I've added brads and corner embellishments and a pretty gold embossed stamped image, which is from Stampin' Up! I added the same image to the coordinating envelope.

My next card uses a darling chicken paper piecing from the myscrapchick Farm Friends collection. She has been chalked and popped on dimensionals. The scalloped circles are svg files from myscrapchick that I cut using my Cricut.

I have to warn you that the inside sentiment is incredibly corny! A very bad pun indeed! But I think it's still a cute card nonetheless :)

So there are my creations for the week. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely weekend!
