This is my second post today. Please scroll down for my Christmas card.

I love making vintage style cards and for a change didn't distress the ages and used purple in with the neutral shades. I'm loving this colour combo. The dress form is a digi from The Crafty Pad, inked with DI Vintage Photo. The scrummy paper is Crafty Individuals Travels in Italy and the tag is also Crafty Individuals. I added some seam binding which I ruffled, baker's twine, buttons, wire coathanger, Memory Box punched butterflies and pearls.

Hotshot Die cuts
Party Time Tuesday Vintage/shabby chic
Whimsy Vintage/shabby chic
Charisma No flowers allowed
The Crafty Pad Monthly challenge anything goes with a Crafty Pad image
The Crafty Pad Bingo (Buttons, Crafty Pad image, pearls)

I'd just like to mention a lovely online shop My Crafty Heart. I met the owner, Teresa at the Ally Pally show and placed my first order this week. Very quick delivery, and very reasonable p&p. I was very restrained and only bought 2 Memory Box dies and a Viva pearl pen but I could have bought loads as she has some great stamps, papers , die and embellishments in stock.

I'm selling at a craft fair tomorrow so have scheduled my Totally Gorjuss post. I hope you will hop over to leave me a comment and also please enter my candy of you haven't already done so.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine.
