Your cards have a great vintage feel..which I just LOVE! This is my first time visiting...thanks for the inspiration! I have a lot of favorite vintage items...but mainly buttons and trim for cards. I also love antique frames....which I use to frame my scrapbook pages. Thanks for sharing!

Congratulations, Heather! Email me using the address in my left sidebar and I'll get your RAK package out to you! Also, Denise, who won my other RAK, your package will go out this week also! Enjoy, ladies and thanks for visiting me!

I wanted to show you more of my new Graphic45 projects. This was posted last week on the G45 Blog, but I wanted to show some close-ups. I found this really cool chipboard at one of my local stores. It's pretty large - about 9"x6". I covered it with G45 Christmas Past paper, then used the Crop-a-Dile to make holes for the ribbon. The large grommets are We R Memory Keepers. These are hard to find, so I am happy I have a huge bin of them!

I used some ink and glimmer mist to color a doily. It looks a bit on the pink side in the photo, but it's red, honest! The photo is from 2007. I really like the photo, but the kids look way older now! I hope to have a photo shoot next week to get a good 2010 Christmas shot!

The little chipboard bird is Maya Road. I covered it with G45 papers and added a pearl for the eye. Those tiny bingo cards are from the Jenni Bowlin packaging! More using garbage! My friend Lori will be so proud of me!

I used a foam 3-D sticker thingie from Pink Paislee. I inked it and added some Stickles. Then I added all the flowers - also jazzed up with Stickles - and a mini pine cone. And, as always, some Maya road pins. More yummy ribbon and G45 paper to finish it off.

This is my favorite project so far this season. I love how it all came together. If I get a new photo, I'll swap them out...maybe I can add a current photo each year. At least until the whole thing falls apart. {grin}
