I'm Addicted!

To what you ask? Are you wondering if I am really a closet drinker, or drug addict? That would explain a lot wouldn't it? LOL! NAh, nothing like that....I am totally addicted to vintage book paper! I just bought myself some old Children's picture books to cut up and use for scrappin and cards! I decided to stamp this gorgeous Artful Inkables flower on the vintage book paper in Versamark. I sprinkled the black embossing powder and heat that baby up! I still love watching it melt! The DP is October Afternoon and SU! The buttons are just from my stash. I used 3 coordinating ribbons to finish it off!

I wanted to thank all of you for voting for me at the JustRite blog! I won first place! I am really excited! Not only do I get to do some shopping, but I will have the honor of being a guest blogger in September. There are 2 more weeks left of this contest, so hop on over and check it out! I want to see your name on their blog! : )

And lastly, Sweet 'n Sassy is hosting their blog hop this week! The girls have some fantastic sneak peeks that are coming out September 1st! I will have a few peeks at the new sets later this week!!

That's all for tonight....I am going to pour me a tall glass of vodka on the rocks......JUST KIDDING! (I'm in rare form tonight aren't I?)

Happy Thursday!

Congrats on your win Michelle!! Your project was just great! This card is so beautiful! I love the vintage paper and the embossing! I have some awesome old childrens books that I've wanted to use somehow but I have such a hard time cutting them up (even though they are all tattered!) - I'm such a pack rat!! :) Can't wait to see what you do!
