Hello my friends...

Well I am back from my trip and I did a lot of relaxing.. It was so
nice..  The weather was a bit chilly..  But that was OK with us..

I have to say it was so strange not being on the computer.. 
I did take some long naps..  Strolls on the beach.  A little bit of crafting.
And got half way through the book I am reading..  I love to read but I have the
worst habit of reading 2 or 3 pages and falling to sleep.  Even if the book is great!
So it seem like it takes me forever to get through a book!!

Anyway I am back today with my card for City Crafters..
The Talented Cheryl is our Host and it is also her Birthday..
How exciting is that.. 
Cheryl is challenging us to use the #1 or the word "ONE"
in our project.  Not to difficult..  I had a lot of fun with this one..

So here is what I came up with for the challenge
You are number one!


Like I said I had a lot of fun creating this card..
Lots of layering to create this shabby little beauty.. 




I made this little tag using one of my favorites "graphic 45".




Once again all my favorite elements.. Sewing, Lace, old buttons, seam binding.. 





I used a little square of muslin and put it under my Admit One ticket..
and added some pretty little pink punched flowers.. 



So if you would like to play along with us this week and you need all the detail
on this challenge you can hop on over to CCCB.  While your there you should
check out what all the other DT have come up with..

Thanks so much for stopping by..
Till next time my friends.
