A Vintage Christmas

A Vintage Christmas
I find these new images from Artistic Outpost 
Sleigh Ride are fun and easy to use in altered art. Here I made a Fabric hanging quilt pocket . You can use this as a gift bag or to hold all the Christmas cards you receive.
I pulled out some vintage goodies, lace, old Christmas bulbs, Red Velvet leaves, a hand crochet Christmas bell. and Vintage Christmas hankie. 
 I did a transfer of the stamped children image on Sheer Heaven
 and stamped the text on some muslin.
I'll be adding this to my Etsy shop in the future!
A close up of the transfer.
Some of the vintage Christmas ornaments and lace.

Another little treat I wanted to share. Remember I told you about my BF   Debbie stalking  meeting
Tim the man. Well here's a couple pictures I wanted to share with you.
At the Airport, Debbie had Tim all to herself!!!
The happy couple! I don't know if I've ever seen Debbie smile this much!!!
Here she is at the class she took from Tim the man!
Lucky gal!!!!!!

So beautiful, Lynn! What a great use of the old Christmas hankie - I have a few of those stashed somewhere, I'll have to get them out and give them new life. Thanks for the inspiration, as always. ;)
