This card was made from scraps. I love having leftover day at my desk. The stamp is from Inkadinkadoo's Cool Christmas and the paper is Daisy D. I found old ledger paper in my garage and it just fits the vintage cards so well. Thanks for looking.

My all time favorite set from Crafty secrets is Bug's life. I used it along with one of my favorite dp's- Cosmo Cricket Little girls. I also found some old ledger paper while cleaning the garage and made this little notebook paper. I love this saying and hope your day is filled with blessings. Mine always are but some days I forget to stop and appreciate what those blessings are. :)

OK be nice about this~ it's a little~ ok alot "out of my box". I love seeing all the galleries of those truly talented vintage stampers. One thing I was noticing is all the cards/projects using the Gothic arch from old architecture. For our Crafty Secret challenge one week~ I made this. Not quite the "collage" style so many use but it was fun stretching myself a bit. I stamped the tiny snowflakes on glossy using versamark then brayered on the Baja breeze ink for the sky.
