It has been a while.......

since I have posted!!! I am sorry, but with my little one going to school in about 2 weeks I had to get her all taken care of as fare as shots are concerned. They told me she needed 2 and when we got to Immunization they told me we were not in the system (arrrgh)By the time we were finally seen they told me my baby needed 5 shots, but they only like to give 4 at the time. No fun!!!

We also had out eyes checked and Mama needs new glasses, plus hair appointment with my oldest. She had her hair braided. For all of you out there that have mixed children or are African American, you know what I am talking about ;D;D....that is not a 15-20 minute hair cut....hours of fussing and crying...you get the picture, but it is all good and my oldest looks so cute now, plus she had a birthday.

I am so glad it is all over though and I finally had some stamping time, YEAH!!!!

I made a very Vintage card

Do not be anxious

Paper: PTI Kraft, Rioe Avocado, K&Company Ancestry

Stamps: ODBD Scripture Collection 4

Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Tea Dye, Vintage Photo

Accessories: Wilton Paper Doily (sponged with THDI Tea Dye and Vintage Photo) Nesties Classic Circles Large, hand dyed seam binding, hand dyed Dew Drops, Tim Holtz Distressing Tool , Cameo, handmade stick pin with glass beads and antique brass pin and spacer beads

So, what do you think? That Cameo is from Dollar Tree, yep, it is supposed to be on a rubber band but when I saw it....I just knew I could use it on a card ;D!!!!

To get the plastic part part off of the back of the Cameo I simply ran the tip of my scissors under it and it popped right off...how easy is that? I think I need to go back and buy some more......plus the rubber band part is not wasted either, I use it on my kids,LOL!!

All right, I'll have to run my kids want some more attention.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Hugs and blessings,
