A Little Bit Vintage with EHA

Hello - Helloooooo.....
It's hard to believe that I haven't posted anything in almost a full week.  I've been keeping busy that's for sure....  Hmmm, I wonder why everyone always said teenage boys were easy... HAAAAA....  Nooooo not my son... I've gotten all kind of girlfriend/boyfriend break-up drama to deal with over the past several days....  So, needless to say,  my crafting / blogging was put on the back burner... 


Anyway, so today we start a brand new challenge over at Elphine House Australia's Challenge Blog.  Can you guess by the title of this post just what that challenge is???  Yes, we are going with a theme of "Vintage" this week.  I wanted to create vintage, but also add lots of color.  I used the darling
"Daisy Hugging Dolly" for my card.  She sure is a little cutie!  You can find her only at Elphine House Australia



I told you she was a cutie!  =)  I colored this little darling with Copics, trying to create an aged photo look.  The papers I used are from My Minds Eye. (I got the papers for Christmas) And the rest.... Just stash odds 'n ends...

What do you think, would you like to join us for our "Vintage Challenge"?  All you need is a stamp or digi that is designed by Elisabeth Bell, and follow the Vintage theme, and play along.

I am also entering this card into these challenges:


Sketch Saturday - #189
Paper Sundaes - Saturated Colors
Stamps R Us - What I got for Christmas
Anything Goes Challenge - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Something New
Cute Card Thursday - What's New

Beautiful, Lynda! I love this stamp too, she is so adorable and you colored her perfectly. Definitely looks vintage with the netting and lace, and I love the aqua flower on top!

Blessings!
