Vintage postcard Christmas

For the current Jingle Belles challenge, Vintage Views, I scanned a genuine old was mailed with just a town name and no state and no zip code. To frame it, I die cut an opening in some paper that looks like old wallpaper to me and also used it to line the envelope, which I also made with my new envelope template! I am very excited to be making my own envelopes. Happy dance!

I am also submitting to Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra - Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas.

Red & Green and Krafty all over!

Managed to make a couple of cards pretty fast yesterday, which is great since Christmas card mailing time will be here before I know it!

I love this sketch that Allison Fillo created for the current Jingle Belles challenge.

I combined this with the Merry Monday challenge, to make a card using red, green, kraft paper and ribbon, which is a great combo.

And here's my card.

Have a great week!

Hit the Road Jack!

My friend Stephanie sent me a link to this great Drunken Stampers camping challenge. I was actually camping when she sent it to me, something my husband and I do whenever we can. I knew that I had to submit something and between work and shuttling teenagers to and from school and football practice, I'm just barely squeaking this in. But it got the creative juices going and I've decided to make a camping valentine for my hubby...not for Valentine's Day, just because.

The sketch is Retro Sketches #79 , the papers are scrapbook paper and these perfect stamps from Inkadinkadoo, which also came as a surprise in the mail one day from the aforementioned awesomely talented Stephanie!
