Once Upon A Time....


Good morning folks!

Hope you are keeping well and happy! I've managed to fit in some more crafty time and cut into these scrummy new papers from Prima which are called Printery.... they're right up my street and perfect to use with vintage projects. I printed the roses from a Joanna Sheen CD and cut them out.... the sentiment is Magnolia and there's some Tim Holtz film strip ribbon hiding in there too.... oh and the scrummy metal frame was a great find on Ebay. Of course everything has been sanded and distressed as much as possible ;o)



I have made this card topper with a number of challenges in mind:

Paper Sundaes - pick at least two choices from the following - Black, Sparkle, Flowers and Distressing (I've used Black, Flowers and Distressing).

Stampin' Sisters in Christ - incorporate time into your creation.

Crafts 4 Eternity - Use at least one metal embellishment.

Moving Along With The Times - Vintage

Our Creatice Corner - Fabulous Faces

PaperPlay - Use Black

Well that's me for today.... thanks so much for checking out my creation!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
