Old Fashioned Love

I am just squeezing in with this week's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. I have my family here from New Zealand and am doing a bit here and a bit here, trying to keep up with everything, so this may not be the only challenge I am just making it for.

I have used my newest Layers of Color Set Renaissance Hearts. I embossed the image with black and coloured with SU Chalks/Pastels and a Blender Pen then cut it out with the large Oval and Scalloped Oval and sponged around the edges of the oval with distressing ink. The edges of the DP has also been sponged around, embossed with the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Stylised Flowers, and layered into the CS, torn inked corners have been added to opposite corners.

I added eyelets down each side of the image and threaded through some chiffon ribbon, corset style, adding an eyelet to the top of the image and adding a lock and chiffon ribbon. Finally I cut a sponged punched tag in two, adding it to each end of the image and added 3 copper pearls to each and there you have it!

I love the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and look forward to it each week, it always brings something that makes me think 'outside the square' and that is always a good thing!!

Thank you for looking and for you encouraging comments - I love knowing that you have visited!! I am relieved to have this finished, tomorrow we are heading out to 'shop 'til we drop' going to the Direct Factory Outlets...I don't know about you, but I am not a great shopper, I just like to 'get in there' get what I want and GET OUT - unless of course it is a Craft Shop...then I could spend hours - I guess it comes down to priorities. I am happy to be taking my Mum and sister though....when I have had enough, just point me to a Coffee Shop and met me there after you've finished! I will see you soon - God bless you!


  1. Linda this is so pretty! You are really rocking these LOC sets!!! What beautiful coloring! Just enjoy your family time... I know how special that is!!! Shop but don't drop! Funny how when us girls get together we usually shop at some point! LOL! Blessings!!!

  2. Morning Linda, another beautiful card - I take it you have received your nestabilities? :-) Aren't they wonderful!!
    I shop when I have to, apart from craft stuff - nice to find someone else like me.
    Continue to treasure this family time.


  3. Linda your card is stunning! The colors are perfect...I missed out on this week's challenge....maybe next time. Have a lovely week...Abby:)

  4. I am so glad you have time with your family Linda!! How fun!! Your coloring and design are beautiful!! So glad you could squeeze in time for the MMSC. I always love your creations!! Take care and enjoy your family.
