For my Blog Hop project I chose the "Friends are the best presents" file found here! I knew right away when I saw this file that I had to have it. It reminded me of when I was young, probably around 10 yrs old or so. I loved watching the Raggedy Ann and Andy Movie over and over again. Before I worked on my project I had to look for the movie online! And guess what I found it here!

Because Raggedy Ann and Andy is such a vintage movie to me I decided to make some cards that had some vintage feel to them.

The paper I used is called "SW Glad Tidings" by K&Company. Every piece is inked with Vintage Photo distress ink by Tim Holtz. The tall card is a size "10" card and the other is a 6 1/2 X 5 greeting card. I added some cream lace and stamped a sentiment on one of the cards. The ornaments on the wreath have a touch of stickles on them too!

Here's today's line up:

6x6 Easel Card and Box Drawer

I have been addicted to making these easel cards. I love that you can fill the drawer up with goodies. I started making these for each of my co-workers birthdays. So far I have made three, but I forgot to take pictures of one of them.

Summertime is full of birthdays for me! But I enjoy making things for others.

The first card has a digital image by "Motivet Rubberstamps". I believe the paper I used is from My Minds Eye- "Penny Lane". I colored the image using my copic markers. The balloon border is a file I purchased  from the online Silhoutte store as well as the corner flourishes. For the sentiment I used an acrylic stamp by Paper Trey Ink.

The Second card  I used a digital stamp from Kenny K. Downloads. Her name is "Delores D'ammage". I just love his stamps!! I also colored her using my copic markers. The paper line for this card is "Terri Conrad- Sweet Life" by K&Company. The flourishes, flowers and sentiment label were also  files  I purchased from the online Silhouette store and cut with my Cameo!

And for the final touch, both boxes were filled with Hershey's nuggets with almonds!
Thanks for stopping by!!
