Happy Vacation Time

Yeah!  I'm on vacation and already crafting with my BFF of 40+ years.  This card is HER creative mind at work - she is amazing and I am SO blessed to be crafting with her for the next two weeks.  We have so many fun things planned including antique shopping, scrapbooking, thrift stores, estate sales, reality TV, laughing, and ice cream to name just a few.
There are so many wonderful elements on this card.  Where do I begin?  My Mind's Eye and October Afternoon patterned papers, a Teresa Collins Bingo card, a vintage milk cap, vintage buttons with jute, paper flowers, a felt butterfly, vintage trims, mini tag, Maya Road stick pins, and more. Oh, and of course....machine stitching.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

City Crafter Challenge Blog - Challenge #165 - Cottage Quilt - The colors in the inspiration photo inspired me to make this country design

Paper Play Time Challenge Blog - Challenge #13 - Red, White and Blue

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog - Anything Goes

I hope you're all having a blessed week.  Thanks for stopping by!
