Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges #45 - Vintage

I'm late, I'm late! But what else is new, right? lol Time seems to keep getting away from me these days! Yesterday, after an all day off site meeting for work, we celebrated my dad's 60th birthday. It was so sweet to see my 2 year old son sing his version of "happy birthday" to his Papa. I have been distracted with birthday card (my youngest brother recently celebrated his as well) and orders and as a result I find myself remiss with my design team duties. I hate to let anyone down so I was up early today to get crafty. The card got completed, but there was no time for a personal blog post before we had to get ready to head out the door to day care and work.

Now that my small man is quietly watching Finding Nemo and the laundry is in I can finally sit down to do my post. Tonight I'm here to tell you about the new Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge. This week the theme is "Vintage". This is one of my favorite styles with these images! They just lend themselves to it so well! Remember, to play along you MUST use a Tickled Pink Stamps image. These include Lil Lolitas and Lil Lads, Lil Pinkettes, Pink Pets, and Cherrie. All can be purchased here in the Tickled Pink Stamps store.

I have used one of the new Lil Victorian Christmas images for my card. This is Ivy and doesn't she look darling in her winter wear? I have colored her with a combination of Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers. I used some Snow Writer on her trim and added glitter to it. Card stock is from Stampin' Up and the designer paper is from a holiday Tim Holtz stack. I distressed some of the edges with my small scissors. I then embossed the die cut green panel with my ornaments folder and layered it on top of a ink distressed doily. The border punch is from Martha Stewart. A few flowers, punched branches, and some pearls finish it all off. The layout is courtesy of Cards and More Challenge Blog - #40 Sketch. Now that Halloween is over I can focus on the next big holiday looming - Christmas! With Thanksgiving only two weeks away it's time to start thinking about all those holiday things like presents, decorations, and of course, cards! I already have a head start this year, with a stash from the various holiday challenges, but I'll keep working on them now until December 24th.

And speaking of Christmas, I will be back tomorrow with my sneak peek of an image from the first Sassy Studio Designs holiday release, which launches on Saturday, November 12th! Thanks for stopping by today and hope you'll be back to see what else I have for you this week!
