Vintage Miss You

This is my second post for today.  Please scroll down one post 
or click here.  Thanks!

It's the start of the weekend, hooray!  What will you be doing?  Here in the Northeast, the weather is perfect for yard sales, sailboat races, miniature golfing, oh, just anything outdoors!  This evening, my girls and I went to our school fair, an outdoor event.  My 11 year old was in the Dunk Tank, as is the privilege of 5th graders at our school.  The wetter she got, the more she loved it!

I did sneak in some crafty time today so I could play in a couple of challenges. My Inspired By Stamping goodies came out to play.  :-)


I used Vintage Postcards to decorate my patterned paper, and Just Because for the frame and sentiment.  The Fancy Labels 1 Die fits the frames in that set perfectly.  Sure do love pretty crochet trim, it always adds a vintage vibe that melts my heart.


I'm entering at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge, where they want to see punches/die cuts, and also at Stampin' For The Weekend's "Button It Up" challenge.

See you on Sunday with a whole mess of cards I've been working on.  'Bye for now!
