Groovy Fashion for OSC

The best part about Saturday mornings, is a new challenge is posted over at One Stop Craft Challenge - WAHOO! This week Shelley is challenge us to use Fashion Through the Years as the theme. Please pop over to the challenge blog to see the amazing cards the team created. I opted for a groovy theme with my 70's Disco Inspired card. I couldn't stop smiling when I saw the image at Just Inklined and had been waiting for the perfect chage to play with him. Whenever possible, I like to use the Midnight Madness Sketches for my DT creations on other blogs. Priscilla always comes up with amazing sketches that are so fun to work with. This week, I managed to get the card made before the challenge closed. I have about 15 sketches I'm playing catch up on, so it's nice to stay up with the current challenges.

Mr. Gears and I are spending the weekend at a hotel with some friends. We're wiped after hours splashing in the pool. After a yummy pizza supper, the girls couldn't wait to get back in the pool. Auntie and Uncle barely dragged their tushes to the pool area to watch. The girls plan to be back in the pool at 7 am. I'd better rest up, as they want us to splash around with them again. It's AWESOME making memories with such special friends, who are really considered my family. LOVE YOU GUYS!

Okay, onto my card as my chlorine bleary eyes are ready for a rest. :o)

One Stop Craft Challenge #97 ~ Fashion Through the Years
This week Shelley challenges us to create a card using Fashion as the theme. There are lots of great vintage images out there, and lots of digi freebies I’ve found, but I opted for a different decade. When I saw this image at Just Inklined, I thought it would be perfect for some fun cards. Join us in the challenge and you could win a prize from Lia Stampz.

365 Cards Day #195 ~ This or That
(general card that could be used for multiple purposes) I had so much fun making this card, but I really don’t know what I’ll use it for. It could be a birthday card (pucker up for a birthday kiss); an anniversary from husband; a break up card (pucker up and kiss this relationship good-bye) or some other sassy use.
