Time's FUN When You're Having Flies!


Are you wondering if you read the title of my post correctly?  It's just a little play on words and also the sentiment on the inside of this silly card.   My sister Susie and I went "junkin" this morning and I found this old 1998 Stampin' Up! "Flogs & Flies" set at a garage sale.  Well, actually I didn't even get the full set, just two of the stamps for .25 each.  I thought it would be fun to color and it was!  : )


The base cardstock is Old Olive and the embossed layer is Kiwi Kiss.  The wild designer paper is from Basic Grey - Lime Rickey.  Below you can see how I finished off the inside and decorated an envelope to match.  

That's all for this evening! Thanks for stopping by!

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.

Pam - I still have that SU! set!! I guess I am a stamp set hoarder. It is a cute set but I have a hard time coloring it, you have done a great job!!! May have to dust off that set and try it out again :)

For $.25 - that's a steal of a deal! Way to bring back an old stamp, Pam.

TOO CUTE! Oh my, I love this! And your use of the patterned paper and embossed background combination is just a perfect backdrop. Your coloring is, as always, amazing. This is such a cute card and you definitely got a very good deal!
