Hi everyone!! Hope you're having a wonderful week and that you're now ready for the upcoming weekend! I know I sure am! Before I get on to my card, I wanted to show you a pic of  three of my grandsons. They're all currently having a blast down at Disneyland all week and I miss them all terribly! You can see poor Chris's face. He was riding his scooter and had an arguement with the asphalt! Poor little guy! Just two days before they left! He was devistated that Mickey Mouse was going to see him looking like this! I need to teach that young'un on how to catch himself when he falls!!  Anyway, that's Chris with the poor little road rashed face, JJ is standing beside him and little Benny is in front.  These little guys are my pride and joy!!!

So now on with my card....My sister Peggy from Peggy Loves Vintage is sponsoring the new challenge over at Craft Us Crazy! The challenge is either Christmas in July and/or Distressed Vintage. Your choice or you can even combine the two. I have to admit that I have been VERY busy with a houseful, so I made an extremely simple card for the challenge. Peggy supplied some images to the Craft Us Crazy DT, so I used one of those images for my card.

I simply printed the image out on white Bazzill cardstock, and then double matted the image with more Bazzill cardstock. The DP is from Barely Mine, the ribbon is May Arts silk ribbon, and the charm is from my stash. See that gorgeous lace? I hit the mother lode when I was visiting Peggy last week! We went rummaging through an antique shop and they had loads of lace in packages for like a buck and a buck fifty! I snagged every bag with the laces I loved! I was in lace heaven!!

Don't know if you've been to visit Peggy Loves Vintage, but she has the most amazing collection of vintage images! She offers collections on cd's, and she also offers cut out sheets. They are so wonderful for making a quick card! So please be sure and pop over to Peggy Loves Vintage to check it all out!  Don't forget about her blog where she loves to give away free images!
