Do you like my new banner? I've been collecting vintage pillowcases for years. My banner is a scan of the pillow to the right. I love old floral pillow ticking, the shabbier the better! My family all looks for these pillows for me whenever they are out estate or garage sale-ing. My sister paid a DOLLAR for this one! OMG!

I am so thrilled that Anna Griffin and Daisy D's have been coming out with such fun shabby patterned paper. The cards below were made with this gorgeous purple "Blue Bell Paisley" paper from Daisy D's for Archivers.

My Grammie requested some sympathy cards, so I thought the pastel colors in this paisley would be perfect. The stamps are all SU, "Happy Harmony" and "Brighter tomorrow". I love using the Marvy Giga round scallop punch with these flowers.

LOVELY cards as usual! I was just looking at some of the new Daisy D papers in my LSS and after seeing your lovely cards, I might have to get some next time.
I like your new banner- I would have never thought to scan a pillow to make into a blog banner ;0)
Gotta go and make a Baby card- my niece just had a baby girl (at 5:28pm today)- yippee, a girl- I will be able to use pink and flowers and all the ribbon and lace and ruffles my heart desires!!!
Happy Sunday evening!
