These were dresses ..

Hi .
Happy to see you and welcome to my room
Little time spent in craft room this weekend except for some blog visits and commenting .
Caught up with a little house work ....YEEK!! hate that mundane stuff .
I hope that you and yours are enjoying your weekend .
I had a few moments this afternoon for actual card making , after lunch and crumbing some chops for dinner . Oh ...that's another pet hate for me .thinking of what to have for meals and then the preparation of said meal. Lately I have found myself sticking to same menu /foods in rotation . BORING !!
But hesitate to step out of comfort zone because, I am ashamed to say , that would be taking a risk .
No risk, however, in card making ..
A mistake is only another embellishing opportunity .
My card to share has a vintage theme .

The card base is Rich Razzleberry ,while both images and gingham dsp are from Graphic 45.
Just added a couple of Craftworkscards Candi to corners . I sponged the edges of Gingham paper with Groovy Guava ink to define the layer.

For the inside , simple a layer of gingham paper and Whisper White panel for greeting . Two small images from same Graphic45 sheet to adorn corners were added .

Thanks again for your visit and all comments are read appreciated .
My thought for today ..

We cannot become what we need to be ,
remaining what we are .

Catch you again soon , cheers for now, Shirley-Anne.
