Vintage Jake Too:


Good morning all.  I'm checking in on everyone - making sure no one has stopped crafting without me ;)

It's been a couple of whirlwind weeks here, tomorrow we get the keys to our new home.  With packing and getting rid of things I haven't used for years, I haven't had much time to sit down.  I am really looking forward to Christmas holidays so I can sit and relax.

 StampFairy is sponsoring Charisma Cardz' vintage challenge.

I again, used my favourite Jake bear.


I was just finishing up some of the flower details when I dropped one on Jake's scarf.  I had hot glue everywhere and was in a panic thinking I'd ruined the whole card :S   Turns out I was able to safe his scarf by using glossy accents - why not make him a shiny scarf!?!?!  Good thing it didn't land on his face :S
