A Season of Thanks

It was a wonderful Christmas here, I hope you all had a special day too!  I made this card for the Simon Says Stamp and Show and Simon Says Stamp challenges as well as the Hero Arts challenge, my first entry there. 

I think I really had this pattern....amazing isn't it.  I was making my own clothes at the time, and shirtwaist dresses were really in, along with nylons with seams and spiked heels....hard to believe I once had a waist like that and could walk in heels!  lol, where has the time gone?!!  Have a great week, hugz...

Great card and awesome memories, although I'm not sure I could ever really walk in heels.

Love that set of stamps and this is so fun! Too funny about having that pattern! So glad that those spikey heels and nylons have become more of a fashion choice than the norm! LOL! I'd be sunk for sure! Beautiful card!

Great card, Gerrie! Love the stamps...and your coloring is great. I really love the layout. The tape and the needle and thread.

I am so glad my heels and nylon days are mostly a thing of the past, too!

I hope "Santa" was good to you. Did you get any cool stuff to show us?

He IS Able,
