Cuttlebug Spot D/T~~Remember....The Time !!!

Happy Mon.

Hi~ya All!

Well, it is time for another Cuttlebug Spot challenge today, and I can truly say I'm glad to be paper crafting again. It seems like lately I have had very little time for creating cards, only managing one a week. I have been busy sewing, my other hobby, but must get back to crafting too. I am sitting here typing this up while everyone else is probably watching the Oscars. I decided to get it out of the way as I needed something new here on my blog. Our theme this week at The Cuttlebug Spot is "vintage". Now when you see my card, you will really think it is vintage when you see the price of this sewing machine. Also from the past is the ABC's board from way back when. I was looking on the internet while talking with my buddy Donna M., on the phone and I saw this baby..lol, every time of think of that picture, (he looked like Howdy Doody and Baby Smurf welded into one. He was Hilarious!!!!

I then stumbled upon this very old sewing machine, and since that is what I have been doing for the last few weeks, I thought it would be a perfect image. After finishing up the card, I had to think of a title, and it hit me like a brick. Remember the good old days when everything was really inexpensive? I started humming the song by the late great "Michael Jackson", "Remember the time?" I use to play that song to death, as we use to say. Anyway that is how this card came about. I used 4 different CB folders, 3 on the vintage picture to give it that aged look. The background is the hounds tooth folder. The cardstock, eyelets, inks and tag punches are SU, clear peel-offs from stash, and Just Rite for stamped sentiment on the tag. May Art Velvet ribbon, and pearls are also from my stash. Be sure to check out all my DT sisters creations, and come and play along with us this week. There are some great prizes this week, including one from yours truly! Catcha soon!

Great card, Lillie! Love the colors and the distressed edges on the paper. LOVE all the embossing! Yummy velvet ribbon and that antique looking grommet and beads give it all a totally vintage feel!
