Field Flowers and a Grammie & Mason day!

This is the very first card that I made at the new apartment.  I used background paper from an old dictionary that I purchased at the the thrift store.  It is a HUGE dictionary....I will have paper to use for a million years...that is if I live that long!  LOL  The brown crocheted lace is a thrift shop purchase too.  I did some distressing on it to give it a shabby chic look to it.  I love this stamp set Field Flowers from Stampin' UP!  You will be seeing a lot more of it in the future.  Last but not least...I used the Modern Label punch to punch out the sentiment.

Here is a closer view of the card:

I was down at the flea market this morning.  Ruth Petersen stopped in to say hi and visit awhile and it was great to see her.  I was down there today till about noon and then came home to watch Mason for the kids as Antonio had a couple of job interviews and they went grocery shopping at Aldi's.  We had lots of fun watching the Aristocrats, eating and playing with animal crackers, while cuddling in the recliner.  Plus we had a nap and we were outside for awhile walking around and Mason was swishing his hands through the ant hills.  He was so excited to see a squirrel run near us.  It is very fun to see the world through his eyes!  Elaine

  1. Hello there! So glad you are back on your blog! I was getting tired of checking every so often and only finding the same pretty Christmas card on here to look at! Knew you were super busy though. Hope everything smooths out now and goes along normally for all of you. Sounds like you and Mason are having fun. Enjoyed your new cards too! Corrine Ann
