Gotta love vintage...

Gotta love it...Vintage, that is! I remember those days! Lol. Just kidding! Not quite that old yet!!!


When today's challenge at 365 Cards came in with a "Going Vintage" theme, I remembered this great Graphic 45 paper I had. It was left over from a vintage cigar box class I took at For Keeps Sake a while back.




The second card is for Stamptacular Sunday's challenge, which was to create a card that was three dimensional. This card uses the Papertrey Ink's Everyday Button Bits set. Both the piece with the stamping and the buttons are adhered with dimensional dots.



DD and I are going to meet up sor supper in a bit, so I'm off to the shower for now. Hope that your Thursday has been full of blessings!

Hmmm....why do we sing "Take me out to the ballgame" when we are already there???

Oh am I lovin the Papertrey Ink set - and how do you spell BORROW - I am so glad we live close enough to "borrow" "things" as in stamp sets, punches inks etc etc. I wasn't quite sure when I saw the set what you were going to do but bling the light bulb just went ON.
