Old Memories

I haven't had much time to play with Theresa Momber's newest set, "Timeless Treasures", and although I made a couple cards with it... they are not what I truly want to express with this set. I've been scurrying around to get things together for our trip tomorrow and well, I STILL need to make a couple more cards to post while I'm gone. Wouldn't want you all to miss me now, would I? Nor... would I want you to think I was having the LEAST bit of FUN at Gina K Designs store!!! Ohhhh what a task that will be... shopping and more shopping... sooo tiring! Hee Hee Have I made you "green" yet??? *evil grin* Today's card was made using the pendant from Theresa's set. I knew when I first saw it, I HAD to make a blue cameo with it. Years ago... when I was but a young, carefree girl dressing up in mom's clothes and jewelry, I remember my mom had one of these. I LOVED it. I thought it was just so feminine. But.. much to my dismay, she wouldn't allow me to wear it. So, it became something I adored only when she wore it. When I got older, my mom bought one for me. Now, you would think... as much as I wanted that necklace, I would still have it today Well... I may... I'm not really sure. When I graduated from high school, my uncle made me this HUGE jewelry box. I haven't used it in so long, I'm not sure what's tucked away inside. I may have to open it up and see what "treasures" I find. Funny thing, he made it with a key that looks almost identical to the one in Theresa's set!! This was a pretty simple card and I have to tell you. If you look at the scalloped edges , you will see a small amount of greenish/yellow on it. Well.. honestly.. that was a "boo boo". I grabbed a sponge I had previously been using and well... started pouncing away. EEEEK!!! I grabbed more paper and was all set to do it when I decided... "ya know... that kinda looks like the color "cheap" jewelry gets when you leave it forever. So.. I decided to leave it. NOT that I have any cheap jewelry!!!! HA!!! (Right!) But... for some reason it looked "old" to me. I might do another blue cameo some day when I have more time, but for now, it just spoke to me to leave it.
I hope you have a great day and don't miss me to much... who knows... I COULD be shopping for YOU!! Did you sign up for the Blog Candy?? Last chance to get it done today!! *smile* Signature
