Crazy for vintage

I so am lately... It is a big trend at the moment, and I'm glad that somewhere on the way I decided that I'd give it a try once again. Although perhaps I'd rather call my approach a shabby chic. Mind you, sometimes far more shabby than chic! lol

I've got three cards to show you - yippee! Moreover - it's my third post for tonight, so make sure you scroll down to see my Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop & SFYTT GD posts :)

It's Saturday, and it means that it's time for another challenge at Card Patterns. We've got a wonderful sketch, and even more super swell sponsor - again it's Hero Arts!



One random participant this week will win a fantastic assortment of clings from Hero Arts. That's a $30 retail value! How amazing is that!? Click the sketch below to see what exact stamps are in the drawing - you'll sure want to play along when you see what I'm talking about ;)

Here's the sketch and my sample, for which I used the lovely colours of PDCC27:

I also managed to squeeze in two non-DT cards this evening, here they are...
Here's one using GS #36 sketch, and with the Mother's Day theme, for the current OCC & Cards blog challenges. I made this one for my mum - got to send it soon, so that it reaches Poland in time :) The sentiment says "mum"
