after Midnight............











Well it is well after midnight and I am still puddering around.  I love, love, loveeeeeeee Summer nights like this.   I feel like I have more time...magic time gained to do what I please with.  I wanted to share a couple of projects I have made of late.  I was lucky enough to discover a few new treasures.... a bundle of sewing patterns from wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy back and some snippets of very old lace.  I put them both to good use....I made a little card and envelope set..heavy with the toppins...and a pocket with a card and tag using one of the images from a pattern.  I used part of the patterns as paper as well.  There is nothing like the real thing....authentic and timeless.   I hope you enjoy !  I will be leaving shortly on vacation with family.  I will still have several posts that are scheduled with design teams and hope you still find time to visit.    Happy summer, hugs, cherry

Cherry, these are so pretty!! Looovvveee the vintage treasures on here. I wish I had the extra time to create more, but summer takes me out of the house too much and that means no creating! Thanks for the inspiration though and think I'll try to get a card or 2 completed today! ENJOY your vaca!
