JUST a NOTE ...

I was itching to use this lovely vintage stamp for quite a few weeks now.  Its from Free Vintage Digital Stamps. The 'just a note' sentiment with the music notes co-ordinates well with the main image, and I had no choice but to use it.  Thank you Hannelie{Desert Diva} for always being so generous with your free digi sentiments you create.  Whenever I am in need of the perfect sentiment, I just pop over to you.

Once again I used a flower folding technique for the three flowers.  I used the Upikit 2" Scalloped Square punch this time.  Here's the tutorial for the lotus flower fold.  Hope you approve of my attempt vintage.

I have also used the 4-15-09 card sketch over at Lets Scrap as inspiration to get the creation going.



 Here's the free digis for you to download.  Just click on them and then right click and save it to your computer.  Would love to see what you create with them.


Once again I would love to enter this creation into the following challenge, this week:


Thanks a mil for taking time out to pop in here at my little space in cyber land and hope you enjoyed your visit.  Also know that each and every comment are savoured and treasured.
