vintage goodness..

Hello!

Thanks for stoppin' by....we are celebrating Vintage Week over at 365 Cards with a HOP!

You should have arrived here from Pam's blog:

Mackenzie Mae Designs

If not, you'll want to start at the 365 Cards blog...you don't want to miss out on all of the fun and the PRIZES!!!


We are soooo thankful for our Design Team Member Gloria Stengal:


She is sooo kindly sponoring Vintage Week at 365 Cards...she is definitely the Queen of Vintage Style and is also a Design Team Member for Graphic 45.  Gloria provided some vintage goodies to the 365 Cards Design Team {including G45!!} AND she has also provided some prizes for the week!

Each of the gals on the design team will be revealing a 'recipe' for an ultimate card...There will be a prize for people that brave the ultimate card recipe {collect ingredients through the week} along with a drawing for everyone that participates in any/all of the daily challenges....There is ALSO another prize for a random draw on all the people that comment on all of the DT's 365 Cards Blog posts....Whew....chances at 3 fabbie prizes!!!

Okay, here is the Super Sunday Sketch:


Here's my take on the sketch....all the pieces {except the black cardstock} are compliments of Gloria...thanks sista!!!!


I also did another card...everything except the button/bling and green polka dot strips {Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather...I'm counting this as my project-a-day...I know...I know...it's just a smidge but...}


Can you guess what MY ingredient is?  It is stitching....Real OR Faux!

So hop along peeps...your next hop is the fun & sassy:

Dana Gustafson said...

Vintage fab indeed! I love what you did with the graphic 45 papers and my guess is "faux" stitching....either that or I am green with envy on how PERFECT your real stitching is! :)

Christina said...

lovely!

Goblinf said...

Ok so, not that I'm looking to cheat, but - real stitching involves paper piercing, two in one go? Sigh probably not... You know for an embroiderer, it's bizarre but I've never stitched on one of my cards! Another 8 terrifying ingredients to go...

li-bee-ti said...

Oh, Amy! these cards are stunning! Even when you do vintage, you still keep your style with vibrant colors!
I've been a bad blogy friend lately, and I have a lot to catch up with your blog....
