Two Really Cool Blogs That Share Vintage Stamps

Hi!! Just a quick post to highlight two blogs I really enjoy!! They both feature vintage images for free as well as some images that are for purchase. Click on the pics and you will be linked to their sites!!

TLC Creations features vintage images, background papers and tons of sentiments!! Paulette is very generous with her freebies, so if do decide to partake of some of her downloads don't forget to leave some love in her comments section!!! ☺

Clearly Vintage is chalk full of vintage photos and images as well as vintage labelling. Very cool site--plan to spend some time there going into previous posts to see more!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Sundays With Crissy--Challenge #20

Well hello there!! As you can see I have been taking a bit of a break from posting--needed to decompress from a busy school year. As always, my great intentions for having a summer packed with crafting have flown the coop :<> Oh well there is still the fall right??

My baby in now officially a "Minor-Niner"!! Ahhhh the High School years.....! I am OKAY, really...


But seriously, she is SO ready to go and I am looking forward to the change!! Maybe I will actually get some more cards and scrapbook layouts done with a lot less demand on me for parental involvement!! Here's hoping!! ☺

!!!!!!NEWS FLASH!!!!!!

Our DT Call at Sundays With Crissy in now finished!! We have 10 new DT members who will be introducing themselves all throughout the month of August!! We wanted to create the element of surprise and not totally overload our readers and followers with 10 introductions all in one post. This way too, they will all get their own little bit of the spotlight so you can get to know them better. Crissy also chose 10 guest designers who will we will be showcasing throughout the next 5 months for one post only. Thanks to everyone who took the time and effort not only to make a card(s)but to all of you who took the time to enter our DT CALL!!

Now onto this month's challenge over at Sundays With Crissy. This month the theme is K.I.S.S--Keep It Simple Stamper. That means your cards/projects have to be just that--SIMPLE. Here are some ideas for you out there that are not use to simple---> use just one or one type of embellishment, only one designer paper, or just a clean and simple layout.

So here's what I did using a merged image of Crissy's digi stamps "Whatzup Dog" & "Party Time Accessories".

Now it's up to you to K.I.S.S us back (hee hee)! Let's see those simple cards!! Go HERE to upload your card or project!!

There will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! Those who use one of Crissy's images, either from her rubber or digital collections will be entered twice in the draw. But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month. Otherwise your entries could be deleted.

Thanks for stopping in today!!
