Vintage Challenge!


I made this card for a new blog I found called "Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog". The challenge was to do a vintage theme. This is my first time to participate in one of their challenges. So,I hope I'm doing this right! I love vintage anything....but today I was a little stumped, probably because I've still been trying to fix my blog!!! I can't figure it out...and it's driving me crazy!!! To read more on how you can help me fix my blog,click here!!! So I just started playing around with the new Distressing Essentials Kit from SU! and I literally 'threw' this card together. I didn't really give it a thought, like I normally try to do!! Oh,well....it came out OK enough.

I needed a 'thinking of you card' for a dear sweet lady who just found out she has cancer. Please keep Kathy in your prayers....she's a breast cancer survivor and now just found out she has cancer in her intestines!!! I hate cancer....I know things don't always go our way....God's way is perfect.....but we don't always understand the WHY......but I know that, NO PAIN is Wasted!! So,just please pray for her and her family!!! Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great rest of the weekend.....stay cool!!! ;)

For just throwing it together you did a beautiful job! How do you like the distressing essentials? I haven't decided if I'm going to buy the kit or not. I am now following your blog.

Beautiful Holley. The distressing in your cards is always fantastic. Maybe that kit holds some magic for me. May have to add that to my wish list!
