We Are Going to Aunt Josephine's... BE GOOD!!!


This card reminds me of ... ME!!! when I was a little girl, my mom used to take me and my sister to my Aunt Josephine's. We would get the talk on the way over to "Be extra good and don't touch anything and sit like little ladies!" So I made this card because I love this big chair stamp and then I found Tilda and then all of the sudden, I was 6 again and at Aunt Joesphine's!

I used SHIMMERZ on my... uhhh... I mean Tilda's dress and on the chair, I cuttlebugged the floor to make it look like wood and I used my nesties in the background to make it look like a huge expensive painting (LOL)!The background paper reminded me of wall paper and here is my walk down memory lane! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

How cute! LOL I had an aunt that everytime we went to see my sister and I got the same speech! I love the "wallpaper" and what a cute idea for a painting. Love it.

Cute card. The Tilda stamp fits perfectly on the chair!! I remember those days too. How boring it was to not fidget and listen to the grownups talk.
