Vintage Rick St. Dennis 1935 Hat with a new challenge at Crafty Gals Corner

Welcome to Crafty Gals Corner's challenge this week with the theme being VintageWe have Rick St. Dennis as our fabulous sponsor this week offering 2 digital images or 25 percent off Zibbet Store

For my inspiration today, I chose Rick St. Dennis 1935 Hat as it was quite reminiscent of my beautiful grandmother and her two sisters, Lila and Lillian. I remember them getting dressed with a fancy hat complete with aa feather, stickpin and a veil whether it be going to the airport for a trip or church. Below is a picture of my gram and my pap dressed to the 9's:



isn't she beautiful and isn't she a wonderful inspiration for my card???






RECIPE and SUPPLIES:
  • cream Recollection card stock as the base of my card and a beautiful soft pink floral as my background
  • Martha Stewart Eyelet Border Punch on the right side
  • Darice Satin Edged Organza ribbon with Queen & Co. pearls
  • she was colored with Prisma Colored Pencils with gel pen accents and fussy cut around the edges and of course Stickles
  • chiffon flower with a cameo button in the center with a stickpin using Antique Bronze Wing from Miriam's Craft Supplies but my marvelous stash! 

**** I knew I had these chiffon flowers in several colors and for the life of me I couldn't find the dang things!!! Low and Behold this lone pink one was found in the nick of time which most definitely compliments the card. I hear you asking where was it found - WELL, it was found in the bag of feathers. What does a chiffon flower want with a bag of feathers. All I know is they were meant to be together! ***

  • feather from a goodie bag from Kimberly Pate with Stickle accents 

***added note these feathers need to be hidden and sometimes not found because of a certain kittie thinks its a bird and digs through this bag and feathers are found every where!!!!***



  • scraps from the front of card were used for the background with Martha Stewart Eyelet Border Punch and 3 little flowers using Fisker's Burst Punch with Queen & Co. Pearl centers

It's a warm fuzzy memory for me of my wonderful grandmother who taught me so much as I had lived with her a good bit of my life. She was a wonderful influence in my life and taught me sew many life lessons  - Gram, this card is for you. God Bless You.

Happy 10th Birthday Zack - Lego A Good Time!!!

It's hard to believe that Zack is now 10 years old!!!! I've known him for almost all of his life and he's such a creative boy!!! He loves to build with Lego's where he builds houses and creates a story to go with his house! Thus, when looking through Pinterest, I found a great idea for his card this year - Lego Man and thus the inspiration began with a little help from Make the Cut:



RECIPE and SUPPLIES:
  • black Recollection cardstock is the base of my card with scraps of cardstock for the body parts
  • sentiment has been a previous freebie from Create with TLC, "Ice Cream We Scream Happy Birthday" was chalked around the edges with cutting to fit inside the card 
  • then came the challenge - envelopes and I have issues and with this card, there was no exception thus it became an sleeve to hold his card and gift card - I saw  you laughing at my poor envelope but the language this envelope learned in the process was not pretty!!!! 
Happy Birthday Zack!!!!!!
Hope you have a fabulous birthday
and may your wishes come true!!!!
