Vintage Images of Christmas Part 2

I am drawn to the vintage look...I just can't get enough of it! The card above is one I just made, and the card and tag below are some I made last year. Sometimes I look back at things I made a year or so ago....and realize that my taste has changed since then...but not in this case! I still really love these, so I decided to show them again.
So this is part 2 of vintage images of Christmas....and I am not sure how many more "parts" there will let me know if you want to see more of these!
I am leaving to Dallas super early in the morning for a family I am keeping this short.
Thanks for stopping by...I love reading your don't be shy!

Vintage Images of Christmas... part 1

Hello....I hope you had a great week...I sure did! We are having some colder weather and it's so nice! I sat down to play with some of the vintage images I have been collecting. I saved them to a flash drive and had them printed at a local office supply store...because they have a color laser printer vs. my ink jet you get much brighter and sharper images and I don't use up a whole ink cartridge! They let me use my own cardstock so it's very inexpensive.
For the one above I used some vintage lace and added a ribbon rose I made from seam binding. This was my very first try at making these ribbon roses...they are really easy!
For this one I used "Webster's Pages" because the colors seemed to match almost perfectly....and although these are non traditional Christmas colors...I love them. I did not make the's from Prima...I just added the holly leaves.
I titled this "part 1" because I have so many of these images and will be posting more cards and things soon.
Thanks for stopping by...I really appreciate your comments
