Hello and welcome back for another Make It Monday linky party! I am overwhelmed by the talent of those who link up with us every week and just want to say a huge "thank you" for the inspiration you provide us. Congratulations to our winner and to those who made the Pick of the Week by the design team. The two images you see on the front of my card are from Digi Doodle Shop and it's with sadness I report that they have decided to close at the end of this month. This design duo has some fabulous images and each one has been marked down to $1.00 so you'll want to check out their closing sale before they are gone. Now before I go any further I'd like to wish my son, who turns 24 today, a very Happy Birthday!

I used the Vintage 1900 & 1920 images to create my birthday card with a few twists. This one sorta took on a life of its own and was originally intended for my MIL who has a birthday next month but as I was adding the vintage trim to the outside I knew it was really intended for another, my daughter. She celebrates her 18th birthday next month and loves all things vintage so it is going to her instead lol. There are a lot of specific touches on this card that she will like such as the key charm, crochet trim we picked out together, sewing pattern dp by October Afternoon, 7 Gypsies train ticket & Venice dp's, and the tag with a beloved stamp image from Hero Arts & seam binding tassel. I personally love the way the card opens up with the banker's box style closure made from brads and twine. It's like opening a closet or wardrobe and finding treasure there. The treasure will come when she flips the tag over and finds a gift card she's been wanting. ;-) I created a pocket by adding double sided tape to three sides of the dp and distressing the edges with tea dye distress ink by T!m Holtz. The oval die was matted with a solid color found in the dp and cantaloupe liquid pearls add some pizzazz to my frame. I am hoping she will like this card as much as I do, it's different than my usual style but was an absolute joy to make.

Without further ado, my Pick of the Week is #175 Catherine with this wonderful anniversary card. I love the way she recorded the time & years they've spent together as a married couple. The design and papers work well together and the gold string and heart charm make the perfect embellishment on this masculine card. Thanks for the inspiration Catherine and to all of those who enter our weekly linky party.

Digi Doodle Shop
Digi Doodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts. It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to almost 500 stamps. Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life”, and create images with a cartoon flair. Having these two complimenting styles have enabled DigiDoodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps.
Many thanks to our wonderful sponsor, Digi Doodle Shop, for supplying the team with fabulous images to work with. For more inspiration please pay a visit to my amazing teamie's blogs listed in my sidebar.
