Season's Giving Blog hop!



So much going on today!
I am really excited to be
part of one of the biggest blog hops
ever :)

I hope you are having a great New Years Day!
Today I made a one of my favorite types of cards,
I love vintage style images and designs,
bingo cards, old post cards things like that.
I used one of my favorite Unity Stamps
a favorite Top Dog Dies die
(if you put the smaller one inside the larger, you get this frame look)
and my sentiment and butterfly come from the

A quick how to on how I usually work,
first I decide what I want to make,
for today's project I knew I wanted to use
the new KOM and make it into a bingo card.
so I stamped, cut and gathered my supplies
I inked the edges with Distress inks, to give a more vintage feel
all stamping and die cuts were on white cardstock

Then I played around with how I wanted it to look
adding things as I go

and my end project looks like this
Thanks for stopping by today,
I will choose a winner from this blog post for my
blog candy on
Saturday Morning so make sure you leave a way for me to contact you
As of right now I will be choosing US residents only...thanks for understanding
Unity Stamp Company is also hopping today, more chances to win!
(Photo of blog candy to come in the morning!)
 You should have come to my blog from

Rachel Kleinman

Lorine Mason

The Unity Stamp Co. Design Team is also hopping today, a totally different hop, with prizes too!
