I have examined the card and there is no copy wright mark or trademark anywhere to be found. Feel free to use it for your personal use. Just copy & paste it to a folder- and start (or add to) your collection of vintage images. These vintage images are what I have used on the tags that I made in the last post, and on some of the cards in previous posts. If you do make something using this image I would love to see it...so let me know...OK?

I used "A Blessed Christmas" #979E - I Love the old fashioned look of this sentiment!
I colored the stamp with my marvy le plume markers and stamped on to cream card stock. I used nestabilities labels 1 & distressed the edges & sponged with distress inks. I punched the holly and sponged the edges, then glued buttons & holly in place. The designer paper is by Flair Designs from a Christmas Kit. The horizontal stripe is layered with a strip of cream cards stock (distressed & sponged) then olive grosgrain ribbon, then the velveteen rick rack . The finished card is about 5 X 5
Hope you are having a great week so far!
The card below was also inspired by one of Debbie's. You can see hers here. The gingerbread man used on both of these cards is from the Holiday Button Bits set by Papertrey Ink. I love this set! Thanks Debbie for the inspiration & for allowing me to add you to my favorite's list in my sidebar.
