ABC Christmas V for Vintage ,,

Hi all :-) Wow ,,, lots of you are making a start on your Christmas cards now !! we had loads of entries over the last 2 weeks and hope you will all join us for this challenge too :-)

my goodness, we are already up to

V for VINTAGE !!

We have 2 fabulous sponsors for this challenge :-)

The Ribbon Reel who are giving a gorgeous selection of ribbons and lace to one lucky winner !


Crafty Emma Store who will give a £10 voucher to her store.

I would also like to say a HUGE congratulations to Emma and Steve on the birth of their daughter :-) xx

I always think of Sarah Kay images when I think of Vintage so I used this lovely Noel Joy image, coloured with Copics and I inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. I also used a Unity Postcard stamp, again I inked the edges,wrote an address and sprayed with Perfect Pearls Glimmer for extra sparkle :-). The papers are Pink Paislee Christmas papers and these have a page of small vintage Santa images, I trimmed one of these to make the postage stamp. The lovely trim was in a RAK from Vicky, thanks xx

I used an EK Success Snowflake border punch,a mixture of MS, Woodware and Do Crafts snowflake punches and a few Robins Nest Metallic Dew Drops to finish. All the edges were stitched on my machine, saves on tape ,,, :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have all made fabulous creations for your inspiration so hop on over to the ABC Christmas Challenge to see them :-)
