Look ma...I did vintage!

Good morning!

Hope that you are having a good Sunday morning!

We're expecting another 3-4" of snow today.
Happy, happy, joy, joy...
have I really and truly said that I enjoy living someplace where the seasons change? lol...
I would, however, LOVE to see the sun now and then!

Today's challenge hostess at Stampin Sisters in Christ is Lovely Linda!
Linda has chosen the following scripture for her challenge this week:

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee.
~Jeremiah 31:3
Linda's challenge to us today, is to create a vintage style card!
Our very generous sponsor is Designed2Delight.
One lucky winner will receive two free digital images from her store!
Those of you who know me well, know that I have three styles that make my knees knock in fear; clean and simple, masculine cards, and yes, vintage! Well, with this beautiful image, called Love Collage, from Designed2Delight, this card was a snap! Yay me!

Supplies: DP is Basic Grey Curio Collection, Lace from my scraps, Glossy Accents, Copic Markers, White Pearls from Kaiser Crafts (painted brown with Copic markers), Pop dots, Making Memories Distress Tool, Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink
Be sure to hurry over to the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge Blog to see Linda's thoughts on today's scripture, and to see the beautiful creations of my DT sisters.
We hope to see your Vintage style creations this week!
Come back to Stampin Sisters in Christ, and link up your entry for a chance to win some beautiful images from Designed2Delight!
Hugs and Blessings,
Patti J.
P.S. Don't forget to stop back by my blog on the 25th for the March of the Snowmen Blog Hop! Get your cup of coffee or cocoa, and settle in for some beautiful eye candy, and a whole lotta blog candy as well!

Now I love vintage and this hits the mark! Lovely! Oh yeah, better listen to the weather again, last I heard the storm is staying north, maybe an inch here. I did see freezing rain in one forecast and that scares me! Have a great day, but better get out and stack up on groceries just in case...

Another awesome card kiddo! Cute image. Love the background squares and the bling you added to make them pop. The touch of lace was pure genius. I'm with you, I don't do vintage much, but you did it with ease on this one! Best, Curt
