Going Vintage . . .

Hello friends ...

Today I've created a card that gets me back into my love of 'vintage' and actually fits a couple of challenges.  First of all is the 'Vintage Children' challenge over at The Cheerful Stamp Pad blog and secondly is the 'Night and it's Mystery + use a die' challenge over at the Time4Scrap challenge blog.

What fun I had creating this card and actually was able to use more of my scraps!  I don't do it often enough, but I enjoy looking through my scrap bin and pulling pieces out that I feel coordinate well and seeing what I can create ... such as I've done with this card.  I'll be sharing a few more cards next week using this same idea ... I should title my post SCRAP BIN BEAUTIES!  lol ...

Anyway, it's been a very busy morning here but really haven't gotten much accomplished!  Ever have those days?  Yikes ... and it's nearly time for lunch.  Boy .. I must be slowing down in my old age!  

Papers:  scraps from various companies
Accessories:  TJ Designs Vintage Collage Pack, Cheery Lynn Designs B165 Lace Corner Deco E die, pumpkin grosgrain ribbon, Prima flowers, Stampendous diamond dots

Thanks for stopping by today and OH YEA ... have you taken part in my PRIMA DOLL HOP (week 1) yet?  Oh please be sure to hop along ... there will be some fabulous prizes given away ...especially if you are as addicted to these lovely stamps as I am!

Till next time ... and as always . . .
