Vintage Jake Too:

Good morning all.  I'm checking in on everyone - making sure no one has stopped crafting without me ;)

It's been a couple of whirlwind weeks here, tomorrow we get the keys to our new home.  With packing and getting rid of things I haven't used for years, I haven't had much time to sit down.  I am really looking forward to Christmas holidays so I can sit and relax.

 StampFairy is sponsoring Charisma Cardz' vintage challenge.

I again, used my favourite Jake bear.

I was just finishing up some of the flower details when I dropped one on Jake's scarf.  I had hot glue everywhere and was in a panic thinking I'd ruined the whole card :S   Turns out I was able to safe his scarf by using glossy accents - why not make him a shiny scarf!?!?!  Good thing it didn't land on his face :S

Card Ingredients:
Stamps:  Stamp Fairy Jake, JustRite Signed Sealed Delivered (background), Simon Says Stamp! Best Mom Ever and Cupcake Party (background), Waltzing Mouse sentiment
Inks:  Prismacolor pencils, Craft Smart Chocolate and Gold, Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap, Versafine Onyx
Papers:  MME
Cardstock: DCWV, Recollections
Bits/Bobs: Wild Orchard flowers, cheese cloth, Hero Arts lace, Glossy Accents,
Tools:  sewing machine, blending stumps and mineral spirit, Making Memories edge distresser

I created this card for the following challenges:  CSAYL - fabric/felt,  jingle belles - traditions (sledding!!!), Crafting Life's Pieces - sketch

I am without internet service until at least Monday, but now I have a whole house to unpack and decorate... and put a Christmas tree!!  I was kidding when I said my next break will be Christmas holidays :)

I will be back in a little under two weeks - see you then!!!!  Cheers to you all!
