Its been one lucky Friday the 13th. I had misplaced my gold necklace Christmas Eve and gave up searching for it months ago. Came home for lunch and found it sitting in an old pyrex bowl ........so happy :) My Italian grandmother would say the number 13 is a good luck number in Italy, I now believe her!
Here are a few vintage ATC I have been working on. I love this Hero Arts dogwood stamp, it has a beautiful old world charm. This little set of three is embellished with micro glass beads, stamped in Victorian velvet,vintage photo and sage distress inks. Victorian velvet is a really neat ink, when its first stamped its more of a bold colour and as it dries it has a real soft look to it. This may be my new favorite distress ink! The combination of sage & vintage photo seem to give an old patina look which is great when creating vintage. Also created a little ATC pocket to hold and display these cards!

I am from Toronto Canada and I love the simple things in life. The garden, rubber stamping, scrapbooking, old things, pyrex and Fiestaware. I am married to my best friend and we have 2 cats. My idea of a Vacation is relaxing at home working on small projects (boring I know), but I love it!
Thank you so much for stopping by to visit!
