Hi friends. It’s been so great having a little vacay from school. I am so at carefree these days. I have been getting my fill of pleasure reading. Thanks to Gwen ;) If you fancy reading, you should totally check out her blog. It’s amazingly entertaining and you can always find something good to read. Right now I’m reading a book called Vixen. It’s about a rich beautiful & spoiled 1920’s girl who turns rebel right before her nuptials, because she wants to be a flapper. It’s better then reality TV!


Ok so on to my card I wanted to do a couple of challenges. I haven’t inked up any stamps in a really long time. I’m afraid they are feeling so very neglected at this point. DH even mentioned boxing up my rubber/ink for storage. My response was let me think about it, Umm NO! I had to buy something new to get my mojo back. I bought  new rubber, wonderful bible versus, so I can make some Christian encouragement cards. Variety is good. Paired up with Tilda praying makes a very encouraging card.


A closer look will reveal the adornment on her hair piece

Don’t leave it too long before you create another…LOL.

  6. Angela, this is wonderful! I am so glad you did not box up your rubber, girl! Sometimes it takes a bit of new to get the mojo going again! This is wonderful and so beautifully done! Lovely card! Thanks so much for playing ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge!

  7. Oh! I love this cards it is so precious!!!
    The circle's I used for the splash are stickers, and I put diamond stickles on top of them. I have had them a long time, so I don't know if you can still buy them, but I think maybe Michael's if any would have them. They have a lot of stickers. There are blue, aqua, and green in the package that I have and you can see through them.

  8. Angela, your use of vintage patterned papers and filigree diecut are perfect for adding a vintage look to this Tilda image. So glad to see your entry at Copic Creations. ~ Rose
