Our challenge to you this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is to make a card or other paper-crafted project featuring VINTAGE ANIMALS.
We will be choosing one random winner who will receive a digi of our choice along with at winner's badge to display. The Design Team will choose their Top Pick and that creator will receive a winner's badge but will also be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.
I am back from my two-week vacation in England and Rome. We had a busy but lovely time and for the most part the weather co-operated. I met up with Anne Ray, who was the DT Leader at Phindy's Place and we spent a day together in London visiting the Tower of London and chatting. It was so nice to see her again.
I also spent a day with Sue Carrington, who was on the DT for Isabella's Sketchbook with me and she taught me a whole bunch of things about stamping, which is something I have never done before. I can't wait to try what I learned. It was so nice to meet her in person and we had a super day.
Unlike people here in Canada as well as those in the US, the people in the UK were able to see the Paralympics from London and I got to watch some of the action from the last week along with the Closing Ceremonies. The athletes were inspirational and it was so much fun to watch.
I loved Rome and found the history almost overwhelming since there is so much to take in. People drive and park like maniacs there and I was disappointed to see the amount of graffiti they have. The food (and wine) are terrific and there is a little restaurant on almost every corner.
For my card this week, I have used a lovely image from The Graphics Fairy and paired it with some paper I also found online, some die cuts, a ribbon rose, a sentiment tag I created myself and a few pearls.
