Vintage Theme at Polka Doodles #2

Thank you so much to all of you brave enough to challenge yourselves with our Shades of Grey theme last week ;).

This week at Polka Doodles we are going vintage or retro!!!! So please wow us with your timeless, vintage creations! And here is what I prepared to share with you today. I am not going to say who this is for, but I just have a feeling you might be able to guess anyway! lol; )

For this week's vintage theme I looked for inspiration in Not For Girls CD and oh boy, this CD is full of vintage goodness! My papers are a mixture of Not For Girls and Paper Boutique vol III CDs and the tickets, sentiment and alphas are from Not For Girls CD.

Again my hubby's toolbox was invaluable for the right embellishments, which I treated with some alcohol inks. I mean the embellies, not the tool box of course lol ;). A lot of distressing with distress inks later and my card was finished! ;).

I've got to say, I quite like my new photo studio ;). There is still plenty for me to learn to make the most of it but I think I am going in the right direction with the ;).

I hope you can join us this week and I can wait to see what you've created! Please make sure to also check what the rest of the DT has prepared to inspire you!

Have a lovely Friday and.... it's almost the weekend!!!

Big hugs

Hi Joanna,

This piece is totally amazing, my friend!!!
I don't know how you put fb buttons
at the bottom of a post, but the plus
one button from google is already there.
When you visit someone's blog and enjoy
it, you just click the plus 1 button at
the bottom--that's all.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!

Cindy Adkins said...

Oh wow, I just realized something--your blog doesn't have it--I don't know why as mine just appeared one day!! I don't know how you add them...Blogger just did it on mine automatically...Wow, what a mystery!

Cindy Gay said...

I love all the elements!

Louise said...
