Vintage! Are you up for a challenge?!

Vintage!....Wow what a challenge at 365 cards ~ I thought I was going to play along all week - well I managed to get to the blogs and admire all the fabby creations; so much talent from the DT @ 365 cards - amazing!  If you have a chance - play along with todays challenge - it is sure to be the challenge you have been waiting for!!!

So the recipe for today was to collect all 10 items for your card:
Click on their name to go to their blog and get ready to be inspired!

Pam - Paper Piercing - I did this for the hanger of the dress
Amy - Stitching - real or faux...mine if faux, along side the lace
Sophia - Button - basic grey button on the die cut
Tesa - Die Cut - Bo Bunny die layered chipboard die cut
Rose - 5 x 5 card - love the 5 x 5 card size-base is bazzil card stock
Gloria the enabler...hatpin - have made mine, hope you like it!
Audrey -stamp - dress & sentiment are stamped but I forget the make of the set
Kim -distressing - tried to "destress" while making the card! seriously - did most of the edges with TH ink
Hannah -dimensional sticker - had some hearts, not idea where they are from
Sophie -lace- small piece on the side of the dress

Whew - the paper on my card is Bo Bunny, I also used some stickles and a little heart bling for the dress. 
Vintage is hard, I don't usually do this - I love all the cards that have been posted and many of them are inspirational - Vintage can still accommodate your card making style; you can keep it clean and simple or pile it on - anything goes!
Thanks for stopping by today - have a great Saturday and yes "Dreams really do come true!"

Thinking of you Melanie....

Melanie this is for you ~ I know I'm not there with you on Monday but I am thinking about you every minute! I will be waiting for the update and I look forward to seeing you soon!  Love you!  Michele

Precious Baby Card

Ok for sure please excuse the very bad photo - I was thrilled to have made 2 cards today so the fact that I didn't get a good photo is not the end of the world!  I really like how this card turned out - quick, fast and easy for a baby card.  The card stock is all bazzil and the stamp is from Michaels, versa stamped and embossed in white - any stamp would work.  I used swiss dots and score pal for the embossing and coloured some white ribbon with blue copic maker - oh and some pearls on the stroller - hope you like it - thanks for stopping by!

Vintage Week @ 365 Cards

WOW a post!! Can you believe I made a card for 365 Vintage week?
You have to check out what is going on over there - so much fun! Vintage is hard and not my style I am in total envy of what the design team put together today - it is awesome!  It is Sunday so it all starts with a sketch - I'm somewhat far off the sketch but Pam will be happy to know that it did inspire me - it inspired me enough to make a card.  Both the images are digital and they are from Jessica Sprague - Echo Park Papers - Sleigh Ride; card stock is bazzill, some basic grey, some bling and the edges have been inked.
Here is the sketch and here is my card - Thanks for looking and enjoy your day!
