Figgy Fruitcake Chocolate Snowflake

Coffee of the Day - Eggnog Latte

I apologize for being so long in posting. I've still been having some health problems and am trying to get it all sorted it out. No fun whatsoever, and hopefully this next round of specialists and such will find the answers.

This is another of the cards I entered in Sue Daly's card contest. What fun to actually have a vintage category to make cards for! I used Basic Grey Figgy Pudding and Fruitcake papers and Joyeux Noel stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms. The flower is from Prima and the laces and buttons are vintage finds from Etsy.

Hopefully I won't be so long in posting again. Please take care and hope all of you are doing well!

Vintage Winter is Calling

Just a quick post today. Sorry to have been out of communication for so long. This was one of my submissions for Sue Daly's card contest on her blog. I really like the way this one turned out. All the vintage pieces came together so well - from the paper flowers and book page to the buttons and laces! lots of shimmerz was painted over the main image as well as the cream button. I try to leave some of the vintage thread in wherever possible, which is the case with the navy button in the upper left corner under the paper flowers. This is one of my fave Stampin' Up! sets by far! Have a great day! :)
