Oh Those Lazy Days of Summer

Frilly and Funkie new Challenge is “Summertime”.
So I would like to add my Summertime Altered Tag.

The Little Ladies are graphic’s from
Lilac & Lavender and the seed packs are from K and Company.

My tag is an 8x4, which I cut from a file folder and made a box for the bottom pocket. The punch is from Martha Stewart called Garden Trellis.
My inks are distress inks in colors of squeezed lemonade, mowed lawn and tumbled glass.
The small clay pot was painted and then distress, and buffed with sandpaper. The wooden scoop is from bath salt set, it too was painted, distress and sanded. Stamps are from Arts Impressions, Impressions Obsessions and TAC. Inside of tag, “It takes a long time”, (stamp) is from Gina K Designs.
Stop into
Frilly and Funkie and all the wonderful art work
posted for this challenge.
Thank you for spending your Sunday with me.
Come and enjoy Summer with us.

New Stamps from Club Scrap

When I saw this set of stamps, I thought I better get a hold
of Sara as these were a “must have”!

From Club Scrap June 2013 release “Hope”.
A little Retro/Vintage set that looks an

old table cloth my Great Aunt Della had.
So I came up with this card for a Baking friend of mine.
Hope you will enjoy it too.
Thanks for stopping in today, Hugs Vada

"You Make a Lovely Couple".

The Cheerful Stamp Pad has a new challenge posted and it’s called
"You Make a Lovely Couple".
The only true restriction on this theme is that you have both
a man and woman or a boy and girl.

This is a scanned copy of my Grandparents that I added some color too.
There’s no special technique here, just fancy background papers.

Thanks for stopping in today, pop over to
Check out the wonderful samples the DT made.
Have a Great Day.  Hugs Vada

Until then, Stay Safe and Have a Great Fourth of July week-end.
