The Crafty Pad Challenge - Vintage DT card

Hello my lovelies, Well I'm back with my 2nd post and this time it's to tell you of the wonderful challenge over at The Crafty Pad this week. The theme is "Vintage" which of course you can use your creative imagination to interpret.

I've used the wonder Boots image from The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs. I decided to paper piece them. Debbie has a wonderful selection of ladies footwear, from elegant shoes, to boots, retro shoes and fluf
fy slippers. Do pop over and take a look at the great selection available.

We are being sponsored this week by Letraset who will be sending these fabby promarkers to one lucky winner, and not just that, Debbie is also a digital image from the store. A very nice prize this week indeed.

Do run on over to the Crafty Pad and see the other wonderful designs my friends on the DT have created for you this week, and while we are on the subject, Welcome to Tina & Sally our newest ladies on the Design Team. Go give them some love.

That's all for now folks, but I will be back later with another little creation that's almost complete. See you all soon.

  1. Suzi this is sooooooooooo vintage. I love the feel! Great boots girl! Hey, the Crafty Pad doesn't EXACTLY say what their challenge is,if I hadn't seen yours I wouldn't know what the challenge is....perhaps you could let them know? And the only info I got about Cutest Blog going down has something to do with photobucket. Now I am not sure of the relationship , but photobucket was pulling the plug, therefore The Cutest Blog blogs got dumped? That's all I know.

  2. Oh this is a fab vintage card Suzi, love the elements used and colour combo.
