Vintage Birthdays

I must say, I like this card!
Paper: Life's Journey by K & Company
Stamp: Vintage Labels (2010 Sale-a-bration from Stampin Up)
Ink: Chocolate Chip Stampin Write marker (I went with the marker so I didn't have to mess with goopy Craft ink. Works wonderful!
AND..... the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get "Happy Birthday" perfectly centered inside the vintage label stamp.
Challenges: CardMaker Card Swaps: Use blue, green and brown
Unscripted Sketches #64: Sketch
Tonight, I did much better job cropping my card pictures than normal. While I was taking a picture of this card, I thought maybe I should show you where I place my cards for the photo shoot lest you think it's a dirty, grimy window sill.
Nope, just a pile of wash boards and a mirror right next to an old lamp. The light is decent here, even at night, so I don't generally have to use the flash! (Don't look too close in the mirror or you will see the hose to my vacuum and the toe of my house shoe... oops.
Due to my love of auctions and Kwikswap, I can link up with Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality's Thrifty Treasures. I got the wash boards at an estate sale and the mirror and lamp from an old guy on Kwik-swap! Thanks for a great party Rhoda!
