Greetings and Hope

I was able to play along with this great Play Date Cafe challenge this week.

 I found a free vintage image at The Graphics Fairy.  I printed it out and used it on a tag.  The tag is cut with my Cricut.
 That wonderful, green doily piece in the background is cut with a Kreaxions 4-in-1 punch.  I cut a circle and then punched around it, I love the look. The leaves are also a Kreaxions punch.
 Next up, my Card Positioning Systems card for this week.  Clearsnap was our sponsor again and this time we were to use one of their Rollograph wheels.  I used two different ones on my card. 
 The butterfly postage piece is one of the images on one of the wheels.  The text words on the other strips are from another wheel.  I rolled this one on a piece of patterned paper and then sprayed it with Smooth Spritz.  The green punched border is punched with a Kreaxions 4-in-1 punch. 
And for a few photos...
 I took these with my Hipstamatic camera on my phone.  We were at a shopping center that has a huge ferris wheel.  I love the different effects.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
