Craft Us Crazy challenge sponsored by Peggy Loves Vintage!!


Hi everyone!! Hope you're having a wonderful week and that you're now ready for the upcoming weekend! I know I sure am! Before I get on to my card, I wanted to show you a pic of  three of my grandsons. They're all currently having a blast down at Disneyland all week and I miss them all terribly! You can see poor Chris's face. He was riding his scooter and had an arguement with the asphalt! Poor little guy! Just two days before they left! He was devistated that Mickey Mouse was going to see him looking like this! I need to teach that young'un on how to catch himself when he falls!!  Anyway, that's Chris with the poor little road rashed face, JJ is standing beside him and little Benny is in front.  These little guys are my pride and joy!!!

So now on with my card....My sister Peggy from Peggy Loves Vintage is sponsoring the new challenge over at Craft Us Crazy! The challenge is either Christmas in July and/or Distressed Vintage. Your choice or you can even combine the two. I have to admit that I have been VERY busy with a houseful, so I made an extremely simple card for the challenge. Peggy supplied some images to the Craft Us Crazy DT, so I used one of those images for my card.


I simply printed the image out on white Bazzill cardstock, and then double matted the image with more Bazzill cardstock. The DP is from Barely Mine, the ribbon is May Arts silk ribbon, and the charm is from my stash. See that gorgeous lace? I hit the mother lode when I was visiting Peggy last week! We went rummaging through an antique shop and they had loads of lace in packages for like a buck and a buck fifty! I snagged every bag with the laces I loved! I was in lace heaven!!


Don't know if you've been to visit Peggy Loves Vintage, but she has the most amazing collection of vintage images! She offers collections on cd's, and she also offers cut out sheets. They are so wonderful for making a quick card! So please be sure and pop over to Peggy Loves Vintage to check it all out!  Don't forget about her blog where she loves to give away free images! Be sure to sign up to follow her so you don't miss any! Also please be sure to visit Craft Us Crazy to see all the amazing creations from her talented design team, and play along with the challenge for a chance to win a fabulous prize from Peggy! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Gorgeous Christmas card, GF! Love it! I saw your card on our Craft Us Crazy blog & thought Gee.....what a pretty card. Sherri......that's a nice name. Little did I realize that it was YOU. LOL (Funny cuz my mom always called me Sherri too. LOL)

Anywho.........thanks a bunch for joining us for this challenge. You definitely brought your amazing brand of style to our blog.

Happy Huggies & have a FABulous weekend.

Oh.......I forgot to mention your darling grandsons. Too cute! Poor Chris. My youngest son had an unfortunate accident with his bike when he was around 10. Lost his front tooth. Was not a pretty sight. He had to see a plastic surgeon to get the asphalt out of his skin. Poor thing. He didn't fare as well as your Chris. He was on bed rest for quite a while.

Anywho.........have a good one, GF! Always nice to visit with you. Try to stay outta trouble. hahaha

Candy said...

Hi Sharon,

Love your sweet Grandson's!
Aren't they CUTE!
Very sorry that Chris had such a bad accident.
Hope he was able to enjoy Disneyland in spite of it.
Mickey Mouse doesn't mind that his face is beat-up.
Hugs, Candy

Oh Sharon!! Your grandsons are so cute. They look like happy campers to me even though the road had an argument with Chris's face.
Your card is beautiful and as I have a couple of Peggy's cds now, I better get with the program. Outstanding card - who wouldn't love getting this at Christmas.
