Bah! Humbug! Meets Peggy Loves Vintage

WooHoo! Another Christmas card for Bah! Humbug! I know you guys are giving me a hassle about doing Christmas cards all year, but guess who'll be laughing come December. Which brings me to this week's challenge: Father Christmas, either vintage or modern. I immediately thought of the the huge assortment of vintage Santa images on my Peggy Loves Vintage Christmas CD Volume 1. The hardest part was choosing which image to use. I printed it out and cut it with my Nesties Labels 10, backed it with a foil frame. The DP and and little tag is from the K&Co Christmas Cheer collection. The gorgeous bow is silk May Arts ribbon from Stamp and Create. This card went together in a jiffy but still looks really cute and professional. That's the beauty of using Peggy's fabulous images and there are loads of them on each CD (350 on my Volume 1!) , and not just Santa. She also has downloadable Cut Outs, for those of you who want immediate gratification. In any case, if you want to make a gorgeous card in a hurry, Peggy's got the goods for ANY occasion. And BTW, check out the Peggy Loves Vintage Blog and you might just find a freebie or two. If you're interested in the Christmas CD's volumes 1-4 you might want to act soon. Peggy will be retiring them shortly so be sure to check them out HERE.

Okay guys, it's getting down to the wire. 3 more days 'til our 4th of July party so I may not have any time to craft the rest of the week, be able to participate in my fave challenges or do much blog hopping. Sorry if I neglect you, but I promise to catch up next week. In the meantime, be sure to come back each day to see the rest of the fabulous previews for the new Fashionista Lil Lolitas, and you never know what else might sneak in. LOL

  9. So pretty, Donna! Those PLV cd's are quite tempting, but I fret over using my printer ink. I spend thousands on my craft stuff, and then all of a sudden I'm a frugal fool when it comes to the ink! WTH? Love the foil mat and luscious bow!

  10. Love this card! I have one question...when do you find time to!
