JUST FOR FUN
Are you ready for more Christmas. My long time friend Carolyn has been playing with me for the last few days. Every year I help her out with making Christmas cards and small gifts for co-workers. This year it has gone wonderfully. It is so great to combine ideas and create something we are both pleased with. Vintage flavored by Tim Holtz - my latest favorite style.
I have to tell you I have been very inspired by Ali Manning(New England Stamper) this last while. I was very lucky to win a give away celebrating her new Etsy shop - Vintage Page Designs last month.
I have always loved vintage and she has provided the push I needed to play with it again.
This is some of what Ali sent me. I also received quite a few stamps. Thanks again Ali. Doesn't she package everything beautifully? While I haven't used the lovely papers she sent me yet,you will see the pink buttons are now on my ornaments. I know I will be making a lot of these this year. I will be entering this in the Just for Fun Challenge where they want to see a favorite stamp. That little old SU snowflake stamp was a definite favorite for this project.
Thank you all for your kind comments. They make me feel so good. Sorry about the poor photography but it is a dark, rainy day. Thanks for looking!
