Winter Wonderland

Hey Everyone, hope you are all well, wow I logged on to find my blog all over the shop lol and had to revert back to this template, does anyone know how to teach the very thick Joey how to make her own??? any tips or ideas I would so greatly appreciate!!!


Its time for another Winter Wonderland Challenge and this week the theme is "A Very Vintage Christmas" so however you interpret this theme is great :O) I struggle heaps with vintage, as I cross over with distressed and that I dont tackle well either but heres my card, check out my fellow DTs creations

I used this gorgeous Santa stamp, it is one I love but rarely use, I stamped him with versamark then embossed him with copper powder. I tore around the edges and used some tim holtz distress inks to ink the card, I did this with the bigger layer. I added some lace to the card and the patterned aper is Basic Grey. The flowers are an assortment from my stash and I added a few brads.

Thanks for stopping by and Looking.xxx

Wowee! STUNNING card Joey. This is the first time I've seen that image embossed where it keeps all the fine detail (insetad of the face melting into an umclear blob)- fantastic work!! Those papers are drop dead gorgeous too. Fantastic design. Love it all.

Beautiful card Joey, you have done 'vintage' really well! I've given up on all things fancy on my blog...I created my own blog header in Publisher with elements from a digi down load kit...Shabby Princess do some some pre-made blog headers that are really easy to upload and I have to say I do rather like plain and simple on blogs...I sometimes think all the fancy backgrounds around detract from the cards that are on display and I find I get distracted with all the blinking widgets lol!
