This is based on thins week's Get Sketchy #71.
It's Monday so it's time to dig into my paper stash and give some love to long forgotten paper. This week, it's Basic Grey's Sugared line...I can't believe I've neglected it, it was one of my favorite lines...but new paper came in and this beautiful paper was forgotten.
Trying to find my inner shabbiness, I whitewashed the paper, then distressed the edges. The cardstock is from Jillybean Soup, punch out tag is from Pink Paislee. The lace, chipboard heart and stick pin are from Making Memories.
I'm linking this up with the January Challenge at Paper Crafts Flickr group where the challenge is to make a Valentine's Day card and with Wee Memories...where you can free your creativity...anything goes.
Thanks so much for stopping in today. If you ever wanted to join in on Oldie Moldie Monday and use up some forgotten paper, here is our Flickr group. You can upload it anytime.

I am really spreading my wings...and it feels good. Each new site has it's own energy and I'm definitely inspired by them...a very good thing in this cold month of January.

The patterned paper is from K&Co. Punch out tag is from Pink Paislee, 3D stickers are from Martha Stewart, ribbon is from Offray.
I'm also entering this into Paper Crafts Blog January Challenge to make Valentine's Day cards, the Wee Memories blog challenge to use ribbon, and Really Reasonalbe Ribbon to use ribbon and hearts on your card. They also have a wonderful giveaway for their one year blogoversary....check it out.
Well, I guess I've put off shovelling long enough...Happy Friday.

And here is my take on it. Funny, but this is not the card I set out to make today. I had all kind of shabby, lacy visions, but it was not to be...

Today's card is for the challenge at Moxie Fab World's 'Grey is the New Black' and also for Cards Blog: Create to use felt on a card.
This was a challenge for me as I rarely use yellow, but here paired with the grey, I like it a ton. The felt shape is from Fancy Pants Designs, ribbon is from Offray, dry embossing folder is Victoria from Cuttlebug, sentiment sticker is from SRM Press.
Hope there is a bit of sunshine where you are.
We've had a wonderful Christmas season, very relaxing. We didn't have any family visiting this year so it was quiet. But that was ok as it gave us lots of time to watch our old home movies which I had transferred to DVD. It was so much fun revisiting all the fun times when the girls were little.
So onto today's card. My Mind's Eye is having a challenge on their blog till January 20th. I love MME and had to play along with this challenge. Here's the sketch:
And here's my take on it using MME Lush paper and chipboard letter stickers.
Thanks so much for stopping in today. I hope your year has started off in a good way.
