~~~ Timeless Love ~~~

Hi Y'all! I made this card for Dan, for Father's Day. It's a romantic card and could really be a Valentine's card, but he is my valentine everyday!! I had already cut out Timless Love, using the Plantin Schoolbook cart and I had already made and stamped the ticket too, using Summer Vacation, so I was tickled when I found the perfect vintage image! I had to tweek the ticket, using my Gypsy and I still had to do a little trimming but I was pleased at how well the ticket and stamp fit together!I used Walk In My Garden for the flowers. I just snipped the ends of the flowers with my pinking shears to make them look more tattered. The postage stamp matting was cut using Sentimentals.I added a Tim Holtz clock face and a heart charm, some vintage seam binding and some lace.I used Memory Thread for the curly Q's. You can find Memory Thread at Michael's and Hobby lobby and it's located back with the embroidery thread. I used Antique Gold Rub N Buff on the letters to give them an aged look.That can be found at Michael's too. Thanks for taking a peek!!!



WOW--Joy, this is a work of art!! You have totally outdone yourself, he will love it!

oh my goodness Joy, you have really out done yourself with this card, Dan will love it for sure!!! just so much to look at..
sorry to hear the hot weather you are having, we had 2 record breakers last week then a cold front came in and I am trying to warm up. I believe it is around 72 today but warmer for the weekend.
praying for a little heat relief for you,
try to stay under that ceiling fan
Hugs, Carol<><


Gorgeous card Joy! Love the flowers and all the details!


Joy, I just found your blog and I am IN LOVE. You are way talented. I just get so happy when I find new blogs to follow! This card is stunning. I LOVE that you did not get caught up in the fact that this was for a man so it has to be masculine. I don't get that if it is coming from us gals why does it has to be MANLY. LOL!! The below card is just as stunning. I am so excited about my new find...can't wait to spend the rest of my night looking around. :)


Oh Joy! what a fabulously romantic vintage card! The details are breathtaking! xxD

It's me again. I like this card more every time I look at it. I tried a non-shape card yesterday. I don't love it, but I'll probably put it on my blog later if you want a good laugh. I wish I could work your magic on my "blank pieces of paper." *sigh*
hugs to you!

This is one of those cards that has so much detail that everytime you look at it you see something else that is totally fabulous.

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
