Vintage elegance

Hi there ,thank you for calling  in .Welcome to my room . Hope that you and yours are well .
Another blast of Winter weather here today and for the rest of the week , it seems .
Just a quick post with a couple of  card photos . Have plenty to do before Michelle and family arrive for visit .

Have been playing with a CD-ROM,  free with a magazine .
This particular image is , Jean,  from Decor Follies. She comes complete with back ground papers
Using my microsoft publishing programme , I chose  first,  the  tan flecked paper then the smaller gold coloured panel then " Jean " and after layering together I printed it out  onto Whisper White..
I then trimmed to size , layered it onto some Confetti White card , then sponged edges with T H. Tattered Rose Ink . Then , leaving small border I adhered to base card of Soft Suede.
I had wanted to  embellish with  flowers or somesuch
but settled for a few rhinestones from my stash .

And for the inside I printed out " Jean " again , cut her out and placed her inside onto same background paper and on the side of some Very Vanilla card for a greeting .
Love these free additions to magazines !
To finish this post I wanted to share with you a card , our Daughter
Michelle ,  from  sent for Father's day .

Michelle , Dad loves it, BIG TIME !!
Thank you for your visit ,I hope that you will call in again soon .
                                                        My thought for today .
                                                                If you judge people,
                                                                   you have no time to love them .

                                                                                     - Mother Teresa.

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