Hello again my friends. It's Wednesday, "Hump Day" as we call it in the working world. The week is half over and we're on the down side to the weekend! Today also happens to be a holiday for my boss, so he will be out of the office today. Yippee! I don't want him to hear me say that, so I'm whispering. ;) Time for another challenge from Perfect Sentiment. This weeks challenge is to create a card with a Christmas sentiment (on the front of your card) and the twist is to use something vintage on your card - image, sentiment, paper, embellishment, or whatever you have in your stash.
Our lovely sponsor this week is Patti's Creations and the prize for one lucky winner will be 1 free digi of their choice.
Digital Two for Tuesday blog. Cora owns this blog and she somehow scours very old books and magazines where the copyrights have either expired or they didn't have one in the first place and then she digitizes the pictures in the books to make them into digital stamps. The one I used is from the Little Folks Paint Book. Cora says, "There is no copyright but I think it is from the late 30's." And she does all this for FREE! She doesn't charge for any of these image. Can't beat that with a stick!
How, how about a look at the creations from the rest of the DT. You can find links to their blogs over on the left side of my blog. They have really done a fabulous job this week (as usual). Don't forget to make a card of your own and link it up to Mr. Linky on the PSC blog. You maybe be the big prize winner or you could be chosen as one of the Perfect 3 this week.
I am submitting this card for the following challenges:
Bearly Mine - Use a Sentiment
Craft Room Challenge - Childhood Memories
MarkerPop Coloring Challenge - Color Something
