Papertake Weekly and Peggy Loves Vintage!

Happy Tuesday! I love it when Monday is behind us (except when I'm on vacation! LOL!) This week, we have a sketch challenge at Papertake Weekly by the amazing Dawny Phillips! And we're being sponsored by my awesome sister, Peggy Loves Vintage. Peggy has the most fantastic vintage images! These images are NOT clip art! She collects scrapbooks full of copyright free (now copyrighted by Peggy) vintage cards from the 40's, 50', and 60's, scans them in, cleans them up, and then makes them available to all of us on either cd or over the internet. Also, be sure to visit her blog. She has a couple free ADORABLE images available for you right now!! One of them is perfect for any Christmas project you've got going for US troops! Just click on the pic and then save it to your computer. Doesn't get any easier!

Peggy sent Dawny some images for us to use for our sketch cards this week. I chose to use this adorable jolly Santa. This particular image was on a red background, and I didn't think it allowed Santa to shine enough, so I just cut him out and then popped him up for dimension. The papers I used are Basic Grey and Pink Petticoat digis. along with Bazzil cardstock. I also added some Kaiser pearls to the corners.

Please be sure to pop over to Papertake Weekly to see all the fabulous creations the rest of the DT came up with, and then grab your paper and glue to play along. Link your project up to the challenge post, and you might win a prize from Peggy Loves Vintage! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! HUGS!
