Crafty Secrets Challenge - FAVORITE THINGS


Today is my day to host the Crafty Secrets challenge over at their forum on SCS. The song "My Favorite Things" sung by Julie Andrews came to mind and I thought that would be a great challenge idea.
I just LOVE "vintage" and this Crafty Secrets Vintage Christmas stamp set is wonderful and MY FAVORITE. Here I have used four of the stamps from the set and stamped right onto the Crafty Secrets "Earthy" design paper. I have distressed the edges and sponged using Ranger vintage photo ink to give it that "aged" look. My satin ribbon came from a $1.99 variety pack (tons of ribbon in these packs) at Hobby Lobby. That's all there was to it! Very easy peasy, yet exudes an "old country" appeal.
Please stop by the Crafty Secrets forum and check out what the other ladies have come up with for this challenge. There is so much talent out there, you are sure to be inspired! And as always, thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog.
