Quick share - Celebrate!


Made this card using a digital kit by Tia Bennett called Indie Pops: Celebrate - available over on 2peas.  I think it was a freebie that I picked up a while ago - still available here.  It has these vintage style cards which I printed and distressing using Tim Holtz's distressing tool.... really saves your finger nails and scissors - thanks Tim! (photo below). 

Did you see what else Tim has "invented" - check it out here... I bet it is the talk of CHA.  What an amazing design - a little suitcase no less...

Added some ribbon in a pale gold/yellow colour, stitched on some buttons and hey presto..... distressed / worn / old looking celebrate card.  I think I got the buttons from Lucy - thanks Lucy... will have to label in future!  I also received some goodies this morning from Rae Anne in the post, following the recent Bugaboo Blog Hop - thanks so much Rae Anne.  Such a lovely start to the day. 


Off out to meet very good friends for a cuppa and a catch up.  Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you are having a great day.
