Vintage Christmas

     I wanted to make a Vintage looking Christmas card today.  I found this stamp in my drawer with my other Christmas stamps. It is from Sugarloaf.         I used distress ink (Frayed Burlap) on the entire card.  The doily i even distressed with frayed burlap.  The lace is some that i got from a yard sale. The crackled paper is from a Christmas stack i bought from Hobby lobby. I used Ranger crackle medium for the image and then tried to distress the cracks with ink. I used my Cricut for the Snowflakes from the "Winter Wonderland" cartridge.
     Alina had a horrible first day of school she said.  She couldn't get her locker open one time by herself. She said that every class was boring because they went over the same rules in every class and she hated the chicken sandwich for lunch.  She was in tears and very grouchy.  Not getting any sleep the night before because of nerves did not help.  She got up much better this morning.  I'm going to pray that her day is wonderful today.
