The Best Things in Life........PPA154

                                           





Oh that tulle reminds me of the netting on the hats my mother wore in the 40's and 50's.  (Yep I'm old!)  I got a new hat every year for Easter and couldn't wait until I was "old enough" for a bit of a veil on my hat.  By the time I was old enough hats were so yesterday.  We just wore flowers in our hair.............


                      Pals Paper Arts has a sweet color challenge this week!


                                            PPA Color Challenge March


                      Looks like Emma is rockin' these colors too!

ACK---I just want to hug that little baby! I miss those days! Your card, as well as Emma's shirt, is adorable! I remember my mom's hats too...although I never wore one, my MIL wore one every Sunday to church until she passed away two years ago! She was known as the "hat lady"!!!

Love your card! Emma is just the sweetest little thing!!!

Rita said...

I'm a bit jealous that Emma already has enough hair to hold a bow! Your card came out so cute! Maybe you work better under the pressure of a deadline than you thought you did? ;)

methinks Miss Emma looks like her lovely nana! Beautiful, bold card. Love how the focus is on the sentiment and everything else is subtle!

Love that bow in Emma's hair! She's changing so fast these days. Love your card too. What a great touch with that tulle!

Deb said...

Your card is lovely but Emma really steals the show - she is a sweetie! The tulle and pearls on your card are the perfect embellishment.

Love this, Linda! The white just pops beautifully and the simplicity of this card makes it all the more elegant!

Linda What a great card. Love your tulle and pearls...
I do remember wearing a hat to church with a tiny vail that touched my nose. I thought I was all that and bag a chips! hugs.

Love the colors on Emma too. What a little cutie patootie! hugs

That tulle is the perfect touch, Linda, especially with the pearls! A lovely card for sure! Little Emma looks like one happy baby! What a cutie pie!

Oh my goodness, Linda Callahan! Even though I LOVE your card, you could have just layered a border of Raspberry Ripple around little Emma's pic and adhered it to a base of Crumb Cake! She is so precious and wears these colors so well!

Angie Tieman said...

Sigh, so gorgeous! I don't believe you about the tulle! :)

Can't believe how big Emma is getting, she's a beauty with those bright, happy eyes!
