JB19...just in time!




Getting this in under the wire...details later on!


ETA: OK, now that I have a bit of time to "talk" about this card...everything but the cardstock came from the goodies I got from the Jingle Belles, Stef and Lauren. When I first saw the challenge, I thought, "Eh, I don't 'do' vintage...I'll just skip this one." But the more I thought about it, I figured I had SOMEthing in my menagerie of products that would work...so I went back to my desk. Lo and behold, this Christmas scrap kit from Tim Coffey was still on top of my piles of clutter (gasp!), and I thought, "Hey this Santa looks pretty vintage to me." And this paper was the one I chose from the kit to be his backdrop. I used scissors to distress the edges, and then sponged some brown ink on top of the distresssing. I spelled out the sentiment with the letter stickers also included in the kit. There. All the details one could EVER want about this card...LOL Take care until my next visit...
