Vintage Christmas



Yes Vintage is the theme this week over at Susie and Vikki's Christmas Challenge. I decided to pull out my stamps for this one, it's been ages since I just used a stamp without any colouring and this is also the first time I used this CTMH image. I love religious images for Christmas and this is one of them. I found this really cool ribbon in the bargain bin at Michaels and used it to frame the circle. The colour looks off in the photo, but matches the color in the DP perfect in real life...lol I also picked up that flower (some say corsage....lol) specifically for this theme. I am entering it at Cute card thursday - touchy feely.

And OMG was Scrapagaza so much fun, I'll give you more details later on!

There really is no greater love... This is an amazingly beautiful card, Lori! So many great textures also!
You are so funny : ) Zooming in on my eyelets (that's just cute!). Although I do have a crop-a-dile, I didn't use it for the PF card. I did the old fashioned hammer and thing-a-ma-jig. It probably only turned out as good as it did because my hubby was sleeping and I didn't kill the heck out of it when I hammered - lol!!! I don't have much practice doing eyelets and I've done lots of 'oops' in the past... Just keep on working it, my friend! You'll get there. Maybe try the hammer thingy : ) Let me know how it goes!
Love and hugs ~
Lori
