Vintage with Phindy
The challenge this week at Phindy's Place challenge blog is to create a VINTAGE card.
I decided to make a tag but it is added to the front of a card so there is somewhere to write a message. It is a much different shape and size than I usually do - the tag is 3.5" x 7" and the card is 3" x 6" - but it will fit in a business sized envelope so it won't cost anything extra to mail.
I had a devil of a time taking a photo of it and then when I went to upload it, I discovered that the flap of the little vellum envelope has fallen down and is covering part of the sentiment, which is "Sending Love and Kisses" but taking more photos was not happening.
You don't have to use a Phindy image on your Vintage card but if you do, you can enter it twice, which means more chances to win the wonderful prizes. If you want to use a Phindy image but don't have any, go directly to her store and pick some up. There are lots of great images, including some fabulous new ones.
I don't know what the weather is like where you live but where I am, it is just plain weird and has been for months. One day we are wearing warm and fuzzy clothing and the next day, like today, we are wearing shorts. As a result the barometric pressure is going up and down like a yo-yo and today it is doing a tap dance on my head as I type this. I sure wish it would just be consistent.
