Good morning and a happy weekend to all. I'm at the dentist at the moment with my son for a pre-surgery appointment, as on Tuesday he will have a tooth removed which is growing on the top inside of his mouth. After this he needs to go twice more to get four teeth removed and then have fixed braces attached as well!!! ... I don't want to be in his place poor thing. Anyway, for a change today I have a Vintage themed Christmas Card!!! I'm really amazed at myself he he. It's been some time since I did a Christmas card and very rarely I do vintage but this week that is the theme at Sweet Stampin', VINTAGE so what a challenge it was for me too ha ha 

For my card today I decided to use one of my gorgeous rubber stamps from Crafty Sentiments and the music sheet clear stamp from Lili of the Valley as well which I'm using for the first time. I stamped both images with brown ink on cream coloured card and coloured main image with my promarkers. Background papers were recycled from an old card, the border punch is Martha Stewart and lovely ponsietta dies are Spellbinders. A ribbon, a chipboard sentiment and some snow with my new pen to finish it off. 

I have to admit I really loved how it turned out even though I had a really hard time doing it. 

So are you challenging yourself too and making a vintage themed card with us? We are this week sponsored by Crafty Ribbons 
and we also have Joanna Sheen for our Monthly Sponsor.
