Two very different challenges!!!
I love to visit Betsy Veldman's blog when I need a little inspiration, she has just completed a few projects using Vintage Findings, including a fabulous gift tin and some stunning cards that took me back to my childhood! I love the shabby chic look, and using old buttons, lace and other items on my cards, I have a huge tin of old buttons that my Mum left me and its great to use them in projects. Betsy has a small challenge running at the moment to use vintage items and I couldn't wait to have a go. Here is my card using some of my Mum's lovely buttons and an old piece of lace from her sewing box. The image is from a piece of PP that I have had in my stash for ages and I thought it made a lovely cameo. The flower is one of a batch I made a while back.
My second card is for Jenny's challenge over at Wee Memories , this challenge is to make a cute Christmas card for Vera's Caring Hearts card drive. I find cute quite hard but really wanted to join in so this is my card.
I made another snow scene card but this time added a little deer (baby Rudolf) I also added some seed beads for a little sparkle. That's it for today, more decorating to do in the kitchen!
