Sweet Ladies

I hope you are enjoying these images from Ladies Home Journal May 1900. Hopefully you are gathering them all for an exciting project or journal page.

A quick card I made this afternoon. I love Fridays. We get off of work at 3pm. I colored this image with Copic markers. The face I painted with Acrylic paint and colored the lips with Copics. The lace is vintage.


Two Gorgeous Cards By Two Designers

This week I had an awesome surprise from two of my past guest designers.  Below are two beautiful cards they made using images from Digital Two for Tuesday.

The first one is a card designed by Leslie Miller using one of the flower images I posted a last week.  She is so talented I almost did not recognize the image.   I love the colors and how she stitched around the edges of the card.  You can see a more detailed description of Leslie's card on her blog Running With Scissors.

The second card is by the creative Sherry Hickey.  The image Sherry used was one I posted awhile ago from an old Juggler magazine.  Again, I did a double take and thought this card is so amazing.  This can't be one the images I posted.  I love how she colored the car and paper pieced the frame.  You can read all about how Sherry made this card on her blog Bits of Cheer.

Woman in Hats

These illustrations are from a May 1900 Ladies Home Journal.  I have cleaned them up and made them black and white to use as digital stamps.  Their hats are marvelous.

Digital Two for Tuesday 174

The weather has been so erratic here this spring.  One day it is 40 degrees and the next it is 86.   Finally this week the flowers are blooming everywhere.  I even saw a few dogwood blossoms peeking out from one corner of our yard.

Since flowers are growing everywhere I thought I would share two flower images.  Both of the images today are from a Child's Garden of Verses book from 1930.
