Puttin' On The Ritz

This month we celebrate the 60th wedding anniversary of my husband's parents.
What a wonderful example they have shown us.
I was in charge of creating a special surprise invitation for them as part of a group family gift.  
I can share this now that they know.


The theme is Art Deco / Puttin' On The Ritz.  I made it a vintage style 5 x 7 card with glitz and glam.  The image looks similar to the two of them in their younger days.  I followed "loosely" the sketch for the Unity {be inspired} Challenge 19 and flipped the striped section.

The image was stamped and heat embossed in gold and the invitation wording was printed and die-cut.  I included lace with feather and glitter paper.  The envelope was lined to complement the card.  
I'm so happy everyone loved it, especially Mom and Dad.

Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co. You Sweep Me Off My Feet stamp, embossing powder, My Creative Time tag and stitched round tab dies.

Have a fabulous day.

Here Kitty Kitty... & Giveaway

Are you a cat lover or a dog lover?
I'm more of a dog lover.  But my daughter has a sweet cat that kinda looks likes this one. And she loves to look out the window.
I tried to color it in to match her.


I used watercolor paints to color this carnival kitty in.  Then framed her in a stitched postage frame and added a little heart in the trim.
This is shared this weekend with Unity's Friend's With Flair projects.

Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co. Suzi Blu Pooey Love stamp, My Creative Time dies.

Cheers!!!
