Vintage Phindy

This week's challenge over on the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog was to create a vintage project. I have to say that I can find vintage very hard to do. Thank to Lou, for some inspiration from her blog this week, and sending me in the right direction.

I have to say that the image reminded me of a Phindy DT member and  online crafting buddy, Cec, whose babysitting both of her grandchildren for 9 days. The image is called Weary Ones and can be found in the Phindy's Place Store.

The papers are digital and from a kit called Counting Sheep by Carrie Stephens from Fishscraps. The kit even included the sentiment that was perfect. The lace is a piece of antique lace in my lace box. The flowers are actually crocheted onto the lace. If it had been any longer piece, I would have saved it for a little girl's dress.

Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing from you.

  2. Sure doesn't look like you struggled creating this darling card! Poor Cec-this little ones are running her ragged, but if anyone can handle it, Cec can!
    I'm so glad you joined us this week for the Phindy's Place challenge!
