Cabinet Cards........wow!!!!
I joined a swap that a friend Christine is having! We have to alter three cabinet cards! Have you seen them? They are really cool! A vintage actual photo mounted on a hard cardboard from the photography studio.....so very cool! I was really stumped at first!! Christine gave an awesome site to go to....here it is.

You can see an altered cabinet card there and read all about it! FUN stuff! I got my three cards, sanded them and sort of had a talk with the ladies in the photos, and I have a general layout for them! Here it is in the beginning stages! I will show you more as I get them going! Remember, this is just the beginning!

Patti,
You are naughty you know!!!!! How come you did not tell me you have this little corner on the internet?? And that you fractured your ankle?? I should smack you but I am just thrilled to see your blog! I notice it is relatively new, so I am sure you got your arm twisted!!! I hope your ankle heals quickly without complications. Do you have a cast? I am loving a place to see your wonderful artwork.
Take care of that ankle!!
Tina
