CCC 25 - SSSS Something from Yesteryear, City Crafter's CCCB37 and Vicki's Life in Times Past.

This is my first post since before Christmas and it seems like so long ago!  We are on week 25 of the Compendium of Curiosities and Linda has us scribbling!!  Over my scribbling, I used a gears Cuttlebug embossing folder and highlighted it using a technique from the Technique Junkies.  I also added a few gear pieces.  Now since this is from a time in the past, I believe it also works quite well for Simon Says Stamp and Show's, "Yesteryear."  City Crafter has a "Stamp it Out" challenge and no digi's allowed for this one, so I am happy to play there also. Vicki's Cheerful Stamp Pad challenge is "Life in Times Past" and she is having a Unity stamp prize, so come play along!

I used three fabulous stamps from Scrolls Work.  Jules Verne, the inventor dude, I stamped and then masked and then stamped with the newsprint word stamp.  I of course distressed this a bit for a more "yesteryear" feel.  I felt something from the past was so appropriate for bringing in the new year!

Hope you are all well and happy.  I am looking forward to 2011 and wish you all a fantastic end to 2010 and beginning of 2011.

Happy New Year, dear Terry!!! Didn't the holidays just ZOOM on by this year? I hope yours were wonderful and that a very crafty Santa was extra good to you!

Your scribble stain looks amazing, girlfriend! Love those colors, and adore the cool steampunk theme you created! I think Mr. Verne would be proud to be so wonderfully represented.
