If you stop by my blog with any kind of regularity, you know heavily embellished cards are not my thing. I call ‘em five-pounders, and I don’t do ‘em. Well, last night I was in the mood for something different – as in “Vintage,” and one thing led to another. It’s a four and a half pound card, and I’m not sure if it’s “vintage” or just dirty pink. LOL.
I was inspired by Stamped Simply #129 “Punched Borders” theme on the No Time to Stamp? blog. I’ve got a little bit of everything going here, including a couple of sweet crocheted flowers from my even sweeter friend Jeanne. Scroll down on her Creative Bliss blog a bit to see the cool knitting project she’s got going – the cutest bunny I’ve ever laid my eyes on. Back to my card, there’s not much more to say with the exception that my sponge got quite a workout. I went so far as to dirty up the ribbon and am checking my fingers for blisters. LOL.

Happy Friday! I’m posting earlier than usual, because we have little guests again tonight. I am so glad, too, because I will finally have a solid “block” of time with them. I look forward to tomorrow morning, too. Kids are so sweet in the morning. They always wake up happy and excited to take on the new day.
No. With a couple of things to do before the little munchkins arrive, I’d best close for now. As always, thank you for your visits. Have a great weekend, and if you get a chance, stop back to check out my Simple Saturday offering. I’ve got a little project (more than a card) to share, too! Later …
