So how old are you?

Over at Stampsmith this month the challenge TSC#31 is "Humorous birthday", not my usual topic but I do so like a challenge. During the up coming months, I have lots of friends birthdays whose birthdays are in the summer, we'll see which young one gets this one. LOL! I imagine the conversation going something like this....So how old are you? after her youthful reply, I would respond, why I have shoes older than that!"

I used the Stampsmith Flapper sheet for the stamped image. Stamping it on glossy paper, and layering it on a glittery ATC. This was placed on a harlequin paper dabbed with silver paint. The accents are Retro Cafe Art cute tiny shoes and a square cut flower with a harlequin center. The sentiments and the silver Stickles accents complete the piece.

Hope you will find a youthful friend this week and some good old shoes!
take care, gerri

"Soleful details"


  1. I'm young as I feel - birthdays have been banned! Nice piece, Valerie

  2. Very effective in black & white and what a great rosette style embellishment - ties it all together perfectly!! Gorgeous as always Gerri!!

  3. This is gorgeous and so retro! I love your patterened paper and the beautiful diamond shaped rosette!

  4. On my way to 60 next week, lol. Anyone have chopines older than that? Love the tiny shoes and a clever way to use them too. The rosette looks fabulous!

  5. Everything about you card make me smile. What a great quote..


  6. Dear Gerri
    So good to see you return to TSC :)
    This is such fun and the perfect image of the Flapper, looking rather coy about her age, possibly! The little shoe accent is adorable.
    Thank you for joining us at TSC.

  7. the humor! I made a card that said, " when she spotted that first grey hair she thought she'd dye!" Great card. Enjoy the end of June~

  8. NIce to be back and see your lovely work, Gerri! Love this piece. I'm much better and will be dropping by on a more regular basis until I'm back to 'normal' lol. Drop by my blog and see my latest Lady. She's 30" X 40" and is wearing vintage garnets. I think you might like her. :o) Nice to be bac. xo Donna

  9. LOL! This is excellent! Love the color scheme and the great embellishments! Thank you for sharing it with us for The Stampsmith Challenge.
