Artful Thursday

Julie Collings over at The Adventures of Blue Girl XO started an Artful Thursday group this year, where a group of girls all post something artful and we get to see what each other has created.  I love to work with my hands, and this gives me an opportunity to make something with the massive  items I have already at hand.  I just take a small basket and gather some supplies that I want to work with, and start from there.  Here is what I started with:

There is some old wallpaper, some vintage lace, vintage bias tape, a blingy mismatched clip on earring, some satin ribbon, a few little flowers and some scrapbook paper.  Just a few things.  I sewed some of the paper together, trimmed it with my decorative scissors, and put together this card - ready for any occasion.

I hope you enjoy it!

Gorgeous! As soon as the Cheerios season wraps, (in a month), I'll be a part of Artful Thursdays! Right now, this day of the week is known as "Noisy Thursday"... but I still love it.

Doesn't if feel great to use those supplies, we all have lying around. Your card is great. It's also great to have extra cards lying around. :)
