More Vintage...

 
It's time for a fun new Sketch Challenge over at Pals Paper Arts. Our Resident Artist, Margaret Moody, has created some exciting new sketches for us this year. All you have to do is create something fabulous, using the elements of the sketch. Then link up your creation to the Pals Paper Arts blog. The challenge goes live this Thursday, January 17th and runs all the way until January 31st, so you have plenty of time to play! 
 
 
I have added one of my favorite stamp sets From My Heart to this card that is chock full of new products.  A lot of the products are vintage related, hence more vintage for you!  I stamped the stamp in crumb cake ink, on a piece of the Tea for Two DSP for a wonderful vintage feel. 
 
 
These flowers are part of the Artisan Embellishments kit, I have been hording this kit, but I talked myself finally into using them.
 
Do you also see the new Delicate Details Lace Tape?  This also has been waiting to be used.  I really love it.
  
 
More fun sewing and look at that fabulous chevron cut out.  Very easy peasy, just follow the pattern on the DSP using your paper snips, so simple.  The Tea for Two paper pack has a lot of elements that you can snip or punch out to customize your projects.  They all work together for a soft feminine look. 
 
 
So what do y'all think of all of this vintage?  I am starting to love it, I don't know that it will become my "style" but I sure do love to dabble in it! 
 
We have been super busy as usual here at the Conner house, take a look at what has been going on:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We headed to Savannah Georgia this past weekend for Mackie's sailing team.  The regatta was held in the tiniest lake, I didn't know how they were going to sail in it, but they did.  We battled with no wind for most of the day, so there was a lot of sitting around waiting, and since Mackie was a little sick, it was not the fun we planned.  We had planned to do some sight seeing after the regatta but did not get a chance since we had to head home to get the puppy.  We did have a wonderful time there for the short time we were there though, my cousin Catherine surprised Mackie by meeting us there, so fun! 
 
When we got back, Mackie wanted to start to practice her driving skills.  She is starting drivers ed next week, and will turn 15 in a few weeks, I cannot believe it!  Tate came down with Mackie's cold, poor baby, I just hope Catherine, Chris and I will not get it as well!
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
