Vintage Baby...

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! So glad to start a brand new week...my last week was horrible! Started on Monday, sore throat...then by the next day, my voice was completely gone! My kids were so funny..."so when will your voice be back? maybe a week or two?" hehee! I bet they were glad to not hear my nagging...but it was only for two days! LOL! Anyways, I'm finally feeling better...not yet 100%, but getting there. Thank you for your sweet well wishes! It really warms my heart! <3

Let's get to the new challenge at Lollipop Crafts...hosted this week by Angieszka, and she wants you to create something VINTAGE or SHABBY CHIC! Our sponsor for this challenge is Digi Scrap and they have some cute images to play with. For my card, I chose a baby carriage...

I was a bit nervous about this challenge in the beginning, not really knowing how to be vintage or shabby chic! But after some blog surfing, I'm guessing it's earthy tones, distressing, ribbons, lace, and even some metal. So that's what I did! Hope you all like...it was pretty fun to make (but did take me longer because of my killer sinuses!) I bought a pack of loopy brads at a scrapbook show, not sure how they were used, but they looked interesting, and only $1... now I LOVE them and wished I bought more! I used them at the top of the card with the lighter blue ribbon...so cute! The sentiment is from AmyR Stamps and the paper is called Julianne from K&C Co. Well that's my share for today. Please stop by Lollipop Crafts and see the DT awesome creations! and hope you'll play along too!

Please come back later today to find out the winners of my blog candy!
Thanks for stopping by! ;)
