Just a Little Vintage Silliness...

Good afternoon, my friends!

Hope the day has been treating you well so far!  Just about time for me to pick up my youngest daughter, then head off to a softball game for my high school daughter...busy day ahead!

Just a quick post today to share a couple of silly things I made this morning...I was definitely in a whimsical mood--nothing serious today for me today, thank-you very much!

Here's the first..

This grumpy little fairy girl is from Crafty Secrets' "Altered Fairy" Creative Scraps--one of my very favorite things to play with!

Lots of Dazzling Diamonds and silver Stickles to sparkle things up...some soft & pretty white ribbon...

...and some wise words to live by!

And next...

Oh, what a cute little baby!  Love her sitting on the cupcake--a coupon for a very BIG wish in her hand!

These images are also from the "Altered Fairy" scraps...some lace, ribbon, and the last of my sweet yellow crocheted ribbon--I need more!

...and just look at thost shimmery clear glass sugary and pretty!

Well, that's about it for me today...I told you it would be quick!  I'll be back on Saturday with something should see my's covered with new things I'm working poor family!

Hope your day is just wonderful!  See you soon!

    We can all indulge in a bit of whimsical and fantasy now and then, escapism does us good sometimes.

  25. Julie, I LOVE those two cards! I have been covered up & have hardly had time to do posts & no time to visit my friends. So, today I MADE TIME! Love the glass crystals too. Where do you get those? Both of those images made up darling. Hope you have a wonderful Mothers Day weekend planned. Thanks for your sweet comments about my photos from Savannah.
