A deadline post!

Hi bloggies!

I know ….. 😯 !!!!!! …. Don’t fall over in a dead faint!!!!! I can’t remember the last time I did 2 posts in 1 day!!!! 😀 But … I have to get this in for the challenge deadline … so here is another post! You know … I have watched and watched the retrosketches challenges thinking how great they are … and never got around to playing. I knew that the latest sketch was perfect for some new goodies I had received this week.

When I saw the tag element for the sketch … I knew the stickers from the brand new July 2012 Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Kit would be perfect. I was actually quite tickled with this card … because it seemed like my mojo was beginning to stir! This is a little different to my usual style … but the papers, ribbons & stickers just seemed to say vintage. I know it isn’t true vintage … because I haven’t distressed the card at all … but I think it does have a slight vintage feel … especially with the sponged edges.

Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Kit – July 2012

Please make sure you check out my 2 minute Christmas Card that I posted earlier today … super cool Q&E! I hope to be back with more creativity tomorrow??? I do have a day up at my m-i-l’s … so it may not happen! But … I have plenty to share! Take care!

    This does have a wonderful vintage-like feel Andrea. Definitely diff to ur usual style…but I LOVE it all the same. So glad to hear that ur mojo is slowly ruminating towards the surface. Having the kit to take some of the procrastination factor is fab. Well done darl. ooxx

    Yes, that kit is so much fun with the stickers. Love the tag and the medallion embellishment. The ribbons look great together.
