A Vintage Christmas


Don't you just love the vintage colors and images...I can't get enough of them myself!  I actually went into my "creative room" about 3am (yes, that's my normal wake up time) to make the "brick" card that was featured on SCS....but I had purchased these boxes of vintage chipboard pieces and have them stacked up and ready to use...they just called out to me.....I just love this one of the children on the sled with the dog running beside them...brings back memories of my brother and I and our dog "Tag".....we used to sled down a hill that at the bottom hit the train tracks and we would fall off laughing.....Tag always rode the sled with us and would jump off before we hit the rails.....only once did we have a close encounter with a train...I won't "go there"...gee my "momma" would of locked us up had she known what we were up to!
I am really into "stitiching" on my cards lately....did both zigzag and straight stitching on this one.....my cardstock is retired SU...how I want some of those colors back!

The tags were made with scraps as usual...maybe not my best ones...but the kiddo's will like them!
