Day 25, Letter "V" - Beccy's Place 30 Days of Christmas

     For me, "V" is for Vintage, Very Merry, Vermilion (red), and Viridian Green, and it's day 25 at Beccy's Place 30 Days of Christmas.  The candle image is from Beccy's.

This is based on the sketch at My Favorite Things 
and the colors at My Favorite Things.


Colored with ProMarkers
Cut with QuicKutz dies
Lace added for vintage look
Beads and snowflakes as embellies
Kraft card base

Art Impressions
Double D (Vintage style)
Lemon Shortbread
Outlawz Festive Fri
Scrappy Land
Time Out
Word Art Weds

     We're only three days away from Thanksgiving here in the States and all the schools in my city are closed for the entire week.  My family are all focused on the Thanksgiving menu and harvest decorating.  On Friday, we'll change everything over to Christmas, putting away the autumn colors and setting up the tree, plus displaying the large collections of snowmen and nutcrackers.  What a great time for festive celebrations! 

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

I just love the lace background you have sed- makes for a fabulous backdrop! Beautiful! We are driving out to Virginia from the Chicago area to visit our youngest- renting a house and will cook there : )

What a lovely card NC, the lace in the background is beautiful and definitely gives your creation a vintage vibe. I love the way you've coloured the image, the candle flame is wonderful and bright, glowing steadily to welcome people home again. Beautiful!

Wow! I love the lace on the kraft paper, it really looks beautiful! It reminds me of a gingerbread ornament and I love gingerbread ornaments, not to eat, just to look at! They scream Christmas to me!!
