Aged, refined...but not yet vintage

Today I celebrate my birthday and as I reflect on my life as it is, I'm feeling a little bit aged, yet refined, but not quite vintage. I can definitely say that I have a better appreciation of things that have aged so obviously...become so tattered and worn, but yet have become so lovely. This gives me hope!

I am looking forward to a full day of fun...on into the wee hours of the night...I hope this body can keep up!

I do have a couple goodies to show you. More from the new Cuppie Love Scenes set that I think is one of my top favorite Cuppie sets yet!


This is just so stinkin' cute!! Definitely one of my FAVORITE things to do for entertainment. I'll make any excuse to see a movie just to eat some butter with a little popcorn. :) This is definitely on the agenda for tonight! I used a lot of the Valentine Key Ingredients here with the exception of the K & Co. Cut and Paste paper that I love...check out that movie camera! The sketch layout actually came from the latest Card Positioning Systems sketch challenge. I did a lot of paper piecing, but I definitely did my share of coloring with my Copics.

Let me just say that quite a few of my colors were shaded over with W1 and W2 to make the coloring match a bit better. :) Just want to point that out...got that great tip from my Copic Instructor, Sally Lynn!


Now, for this card, I was TOTALLY inspired by Laurie's card HERE. I absolutely fell in love with it and wanted to create something similar using the same layout. I'm still loving it! I used the January Key Ingredients for this one and the Crochet trim is ALSO in the store now...WOOHOO!!


Goodness, I can't believe how January has just flown by! I still have some exciting news to share....soon. (No, I'm not pregnant, LOL!)

Oh yeah, no Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge today...the crew is living it up over at CHA and I'm thinking about them constantly! I can't wait to see new goodies in the horizon.

Have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday! You're so funny - vintage? retro? I think I'm both. Your card is adorable!!! Makes me hungry for popcorn.
