I have been neglecting my Color Throwdown teammates, much to my dismay, but when I saw Kristin’s colors today, I knew I wanted to play! Here they are:
I do love my blues! I got some lovely Melissa Frances Home for the Holidays DP (thanks to my enabler, Bar!) and thought the subdued colors would work well with the challenge! Here’s my vintage Santa from Flourishes:
I stamped him right on the DP with Chocolate Chip and stamped some greetings from Crafty Secrets’ Vintage Christmas in Marina Mist. In an effort to make my Bashful Blue “vintagey”, I stamped it with a script image from CHF, then sponged it with various shades of ink, which eventually turned it a nice Baja Breeze color---not the right color for the challenge, but I wasn’t about to change it! I added some MS glitter, a button, and then I took a SU Glimmer brad, covered it with Crystal Effects and dipped it into the glitter too! When it FINALLY dried, I stuck it to the button with a couple of glue dots! Done! I can’t say that I am 100% sure about this card…my mojo seems to have really been missing lately, so hopefully it will be back soon. I do love these vintage images and enjoy playing with them so much! I hope you can find the time to play along with the CTD girls too! Just hop on over to their blog and show off your stuff!
I haven’t had a chance to take any pix of the baby lately, but I thought you might enjoy this one from last week. This is my “baby” brother holding her; the enormous creature trying to “kiss” her is my niece’s brindle Great Dane….this dog is HUGE! You can see he comes up to Raymond’s shoulder! Cassidy hasn’t quite warmed up to Grover yet…..I think it will take a little time!
Thanks for visiting!!
