My Favorite Things & a little blog candy


I so love the early 1900's when hats were "in" and everyone wore one. I guess that is the dork in me..."nerdy hat lover". I absolutely love this Gina K set " Thinking of You" created by Rupa Shevde. When I saw the challenge "From Your Closet" over at Caardvarks I knew this was the set I had to reach for. I had some left over paper from the wedding guest book I made (forgot to get pictures before I handed it over...bummer), so that is what I grabbed. There are little flowers on the hat, but I used some pearls and a rhinestone to cover them up and dress it up a bit more. The sentiment is a Marcella K rub-on, and I am really not sure what occasion I will even use this card for. It may go in my pile of cards for this years holiday bizarre??? I used Kazan's sketch from 2S4Y to tie everything together and I think it works.
A couple of cool things to announce... my cupcake box has been put in the Creative Cuts and More gallery woo hoo! They have such awesome die cuts and have added cool paper and bling! Go check them out!
