Vintage Thank You

"Awesome! I love everything about it. That die on the top layer is to die for. You're right! The roses don't need  coloring on this. They have a real vintage feel. Thanks for including all the wonderful details."

Vintage Thank You

"Although I have a die (several actually) that is similar to the one used here I would never have thought to use it the way you have done. Those dots showing through the cut areas are genius. A beautiful card altogether Melissa."

Vintage Thank You

Started with Gina K Base weight white at 4.25 X 11. Smaller cranberry tart layer and then smaller still ivory layer. I used a card front die by Tim Holtz to cut the card top. I sponged rusty hinge all over the die cut layer. Next came stamping the…

Hi Melissa,  You do beautiful work!  I am enjoying looking at your cards while I type and any times I see a now one by you.  If you wonder if your stamp set is a kit one or was one, please ask in either the Addicts group or the Ask Forum.  Someone will know if it ever was in a kit.  There are people who have been here from the beginning.

Coming from you comments are a compliment indeed. Thanks so much Melissa. My stamping leaves a lot be desired at times but I managed to fix the small errors without spoiling the panel.

Hi, Melissa! So pleased you liked my acetate challenge card. Such a quick and easy card to make. Got the idea from a Jennifer McGuire video. :-) Hope life is treating you good. HUGS!!

Thanks Melissa - I saw it on Pinterest and had to give it a go. It's a simple fold, but you get a lot of bang for your buck!!!

Thank you, Melissa for your words of strength and wisdom, I am really sorry and please accept my heartfelt condolences I was not aware of your tragic losses and losing a child must be the hardest anyone has to cope and deal with :(.  I am not sure I would be able to carry on, if I lost my son, cannot comprehend how it must be for you, but like you say, you have to carry on and find that inner hope and peace, I think this is what makes us stronger to enable us to carry on.  Heartfelt hugs, Rebecca xx
