Granny's Photo Album and WOYWW

I am so excited! Retro Cafe Art is sponsoring Gingersnap Creations this month! Can you say, "Match made in heaven." 'cause....it totally is. Just say'n. The first challenge is the theme challenge and it is 'Granny's Photo Album' - totally FUN!!!! Here is a card I created using Retro Cafe Art products for the challenge!

Happy Birthday Cameo


I used a Cameo Profile Charm inside that fabulous brass picture frame and gave her a bit of sparkle with a rhinestone! The trim is a bit of lace from May Arts and some vintage buttons clustered with the beautiful paper flower. Also, the base of the card is covered with Tim Holtz Tissue Tape.

As for the current state of my desk, well, business as usual!

You can actually see the remnants of the house paper I used on the card above and that is a brand new can of spray paint ready to alter another fabulous bit from Retro Cafe Art! I'm also spotting the printable from the brand new Scrapbook Circle kit and THAT is pretty awesome, lots of scissors...corner rounders, and.... well, the signs that creative activity has most definitely taken place. And that, my friends, is what I like to see in a workspace! Just say'n.

Starburst All Red Jelly Beans


Well, that, and THIS!!!! It's JELLY BEAN SEASON!!!! I love Jelly Bean season. *sigh* It makes me happy. Just say'n. And best of all Starburst makes this fabulous bag of ALL REDS! Yup, Strawberry, Watermelon, and Cherry. There are precisely ZERO gross flavors in this bag and I pretty much LOVE THAT!!!!!

So, with that....have a super happy Wednesday!!!!

  10. That's a VERY tempting theme to try. I AM, after all a granny (and GREAT Granny) myself. Hmmm ...! Your card ROCKS! And jellybeans! (I am a fan of Jelly Bellies - especially the coffee flavored ones & pretty much ALL the rest except for the watermelon and tutti-fruti) so I'm totally feelin' you!

  19. Such an amazing card! Love that frame. Uh, jelly beans?! Seriously love me some jelly beans but I lean toward the sour or spicy hot kind like tangerine or jalapeno! I was never a Jelly Belly consumer until I tried a few of their flavors...buttered popcorn...yummy!! I do love Starburst candy and strawberry is yummy, but I cannot abide anything cherry!!
    Enjoy your beans, Girl:)
