.......oh YESTERYEAR!!!


are you surprised.....I didn't think so!!

So.....for this weeks project for the challenge over at
Simon Says Stamp and Show...

Something from Yesteryear

I decided to create a hanging cone...

Speaking of yesteryear....I went to my stash for Christmas Past paper...and chose Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey.
I pulled out some very vintage crepe paper....not in the roll but the kind by the sheet...and I let the creating begin!!

I made the cone....that my wonderful friend Peggy taught me (I will post instructions later) and ruffled the crepe paper (basting stitch on the sewing machine). Stamped a Flourish on the cone....outlined it with Tacky Glue then sprinkled on the FABULOUS Vintage Glitter Glass.

What would one of my creations be, if I didn't cut and color fabric to create a Tattered Floral Flower!!!??!? I used a Barn Door Reinker mixture.....brushed on some Multi Medium and dusted with the Vintage Glitter Glass.

To finish it off, I came across a vintage tassel, added a Bauble...and there you have it!!


Please will have TWO weeks to create and post your goodie from "YESTERYEAR" on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog!!

OHHHHH and I must share!!! I had the most wonderful opportunity to meet one of my FABULOUS teamies today. Nancy Crissinger and her hubby were in my neck of the woods here in New we met for a wonderful lunch and chatted as if we had known each other for EVER!! Can't wait to see her on her next visit!!
