Morning glory

Hello, to my newest follower, Joy, from Morning Glory Card Studio.  In your honor, Joy, I pulled out this old Hero Arts morning glory stamp which I have had for almost eighteen years. The Just for Fun "Dream" stamp that I used on the inside has also been in my stamp drawer for almost that long. I think that qualifies this card as retro rubber!

My friend Susanne is a guest designer for challenge 8 on the  Retro Rubber challenge blog which involves using eyelets.  Yes, eyelets, isn't that a blast from the past!  I dug out my stash and found these little beauties purchased back when we were all using eyelets, and to the best of my memory, I have never used.

Thank you to Retro rubber for the chance to use some of my supplies.  I hope my readers will check out the challenge; you still have time to enter before the deadline, this Friday, February 27. 

I also used several snippets of paper in this card including the white cardstock, left over from my Valentine cards, and just big enough for a 4-1/4 inch square card.  The green backgrounds were in my scrap bin as well as the snippets I used for die cutting the butterflies. So I will be linking to Pixie's Crafty Workshop blog now on challenge week 165.  I hope you will stop by and say hello to Di and Parsnip.

Now to find my white pen in the mess on my desk to write a greeting on the green, hmmm.

Thank you, dear readers, for visiting today.


  1. Oh Dora, this is so pretty! Very clever use of the eyelets too :)

  2. Hello Dora: I want to thank you for the sweet comment you left on my blog for the Retro Rubber Challenge. I'm still so very new at blogging, although I've been making hand made cards for a long time. My friends kept asking me to set up a blog to share this wonderful hobby I love so, last December, I took the plunge and now, here I am, with this blog where I will share about the things that make me happy.
    Your card is so lovely, I love the way you used the eyelets, they look like a little sparkly trail left by the pretty butterflies.
    I will keep on participating on this challenges, special because this particular one allow us to dig up older stamp sets and give them a chance to shine again.
    Thank you again for your kind words.

  3. What a great card you made using this "vintage" morning glory stamp that I also still have! Love how you used the eyelets! Don't know if I own any of the minis, they are so cute! So glad you are playing at the Retro Rubber Challenge!
