Vintage Santa

The Christmas countdown is officially on now that Santa is showing up in all the malls and the radio stations are playing nothing but Christmas music.  It sure doesn't take long to switch from one holiday to another.

To help you in your Christmas preparations, the challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow this week is called VINTAGE CHRISTMAS.  We want you to make vintage or shabby chic cards or other paper-crafted projects featuring a vintage Christmas image.  Our designer have lots of fabulous inspiration for you so check out the details of their work on their blogs and then come back and show us your vintage Christmas creations.

Our new Design Teammate Amelia and I live continents apart but both of us have included rosettes on our cards this week - WUWT :)  I used a couple of great vintage Christmas images that I found online along with some vintage inspired papers.
