Good times I remember


Today's post comes with memories ...

Chicago singing "Old Days",  the best memory song EVER.
Jethro Tull's "Living in the Past", 2nd best memory song

Here is a picture of something I remember from many many years ago 

and I cannot resist one more ...

On to the challenges !!

Here is a sketch this week from IBSIC
and thank you ladies at IBSIC for a top three last week !!

Here is my card, a dream come true, a tag on a card !!!

This is also going to

 City Crafter -  a photograph

and many thanks to the ladies at City Crafter for their Spotlight Artist award last week !!

and Sarah Hurley - a ticket & a tag

and many thanks to the ladies at Sarah Hurley for a top three last week !

(I think I had a good week !  lol)

I truly enjoyed making this card, though I spent 6 hours yesterday pushing it around on my craft table...

The tag went through quite a bit of glimmer mist, paint, embossing powder, and dragging behind me on the street as I was riding my bike ...  I really beat it up.

And here is the recipe:

Card stock -  Coordinations
Design Paper - K & Co, Kaisercraft
Tickets, photos, postcard stamp, ink, paint, film strip - all T. Holtz
Flowers and Pearls- Recollections
Jewelry cording, brads, button - stash
Pink ribbon - hand dyed Hug Snug

Happy Mother's Day to you all !!!
