Carte Postale SFYTT

I had all of my supplies still around from making my banner, so I decided to use them for this week's SFYTT! I decided to go for a vintage design today so I reached for my "Journey to France" set by TJ Designs love this set!


I love this week's sketch and can see myself using it again and again! I did stray a bit by tilting the focal image. Shame on me! LOL! I stamped the image using Walnut Stain Distress Ink by Ranger and then sponged the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger. Something interesting that I found out yesterday...I have been spelling accordion wrong this whole time. I have been spelling it like this: Accordian. I actually think I am pretty good at spelling so I was horrified to find out! EEk!

Of course I had to add an accordion flower to the sketch as it called for a circle. Yes...I am obsessed!


We went and saw "UP" this morning and let me tell you something...I am so glad I had those darn 3-D glasses on so the tears weren't as obvious. I was a mess. Warning: if you haven't seen this movie, bring kleenex!!!!!! I am a sap as it is, but it really got to me. I actually needed a good cry in the car afterward just to let out some of the tears I had to hold back. My 9 year old son was even crying next to me, even though he denied it when I asked about it at lunch. Enough about that!

I was hoping you'd use leftovers from your new banner--love the colors, and so "french"! Your details are amazing and I love the offset panel!

Have a great weekend!

You do vintage like no one else! Your creations have a vintage feel yet are so modern and clean. I don't know how you do it, but you do it like no one's business!! Been meaning to mention I just love your new banner too.
