Vintage Christmas

Can't seem to get going with anything at the moment, serious loss of mojo once again, trouble is everytime it goes walkabout its longer and longer before it comes back !  I haven't made any Christmas cards as yet and I am usually well on the way by now as I love making them normally but I don't seem to be able to get any ideas of what I want to do.  Anyhow I did manage to make this today for Sugarcreek Hollow challenge which is always Vintage/shabby chic/primitive- the theme this week  is fancy borders, I have used my new shapablities lace doily die and also a nesty die for the sentiment label, the papers are all graphic45 Christmas Past.  I'm also entering it in afew other challenges

  1. Wow Joan - I don't think your mojo has gone very far - this card is stunning. I love the traditional vintage feel and the beautiful Santa image. The die cut doily frame is gorgeous - I may have to put that on my wish-list!
    Enjoy the rest of the week - hugs, Sylvia xxx
