Happy Tuesday, peeps!  I was thrilled to have this card chosen by the RetroRubber team as a winner a little while back…which means this week, I am the guest designer there!  Their challenge this week is to use a tag on your card…as well as stamps that are, ahem, “old”….a year or so!  I have lots of them!


So here we go!  I missed making a Christmas card last week, so I thought it would be fun to use a little image from the CTMH Santa Claus Holiday set I got last year along with some “hoarded” DSP from MME called Vintage Christmas:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Vintage Santa CLose to my Heart RetroRubber

I used SU’s Scallop Top Tag Punch along with the white burlap ribbon that’s in the Occasions catalog for my tag:


My cardstock is Naturals White, and Santa is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and fussy cut out.  I also stamped some snowflakes on the star behind him, and added some fun Tim Holtz stickers around the edge. 


And I couldn’t help but use these images on the inside!  So fun!


I hope you’ll play along with the RetroRubber challenge this week!  It’s fun to dig back into our stash!  See you there!

Helping Grampy with the laundry…got to teach them early!

Fabulous card LeAnne! I love your mix of colors, patterns and layers. And good idea about the laundry. I really need to get Boy doing more of that too.
