New Vintage Website

There is a new vintage website scheduled to have it's grand opening on October 10, 2008. Please make sure you save that date and check out this new vintage site here: The Vintage Veranda.


A Blog Award

Linda from Lambsworld gave me this sweet blog award! I now get to pass it on to three blogs I think you will find are wonderful and full of creative inspiration:

1. Sarah's Blog Vintage Figments
2. Darlene's Blog Dar's Crafty Creations
3. Sherri's Blog Tied Up In Ribbons

Sarah has the most incredible vintage style and is my "shopping buddy" here in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Darlene does wonders with cards and has a lot of energy for someone who has an ill loved one. Please keep her and her family in your prayers! Sherri is a very talented and creative person who also hosts many challenges on the Crafty Scrapper Forum. Although I could go on and on about these very talented women, I will save that for you folks to check out for yourselves when you visit their blogs.


Stampin'D'Amour Challenge #49

Darlene of Dar's Crafty Creations hosted challenge #49 at Stampin'D'Amour this week and this is the card I did for her challenge. We were to create something using lace and buttons.

Tim Holtz September Technique Challenge

Tim has challenged everyone out there in blog land to create something using Adirondack Dye Inks as a Watercolor Technique. You can check out Tim's challenge and his blog by clicking on the title to this post. I used a Hero Arts stamp and 4 Adirondack Dye Ink pads (Butterscotch, Terra Cotta, Currant and Lettuce). I even used the Terra Cotta ink to color a wood button so that it would match the card! How cool is that?
