a vintage Christmas...

Good morning everyone wow isn't this year just flying past, I can still hardly believe its December let alone almost 2012...when we were young 2012 sounded like science fiction, omg how old does that make me sound, I'm not that old honestly...even when I was small I was a sci fi freak and still love it now, would you believe I love love love those little comic books, not the comics but the mini novel ones and my most favourite are the X Men...I still read them even now but our local book shops don't stock them anymore...I really must see if I can find some on the net, I have found some on Ebay but they seem to be collectors items, I need them to be able to be read not kept in plastic, did you see the superman comic that made over 2million dollars last week in auction...oooohhhh now how fantastic would it be to find one of those lol...I seem to be on a ramble...right focus Mina...my card for today is using this fantastic image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Pammy's Stocking...I love this vintage feeling beauty, I coloured her with distress inks but kept her quite monochromatic except for a little bit of orange red, this stunning paper is of course from Graphic45, no one does this style like they do, its from their Christmas Emporium Collection and is called All I want for Christmas...I used both sides and finished with some gorgeous rich coloured satin ribbon, some pearls and a poinsettia in a faded caramel colour...I'm entering this for the Cupcake Craftroom challenge and the Through the Craftroom Door challenge too...we will be travelling back tomorrow and I have a little bit of sweetness posted for tomorrow too for you so check back in the morning...have a brilliant one

Hi Mina, another beautiful creation, I have just used this sweet image but in different colours..so versatile...

Now about those comics, when I was a kid, we got them sent to us from the States by a relative, I can't tell you how many my Brother and I had, I loved them so much, Mum being the kind that got rid of everything, passed them all on, can you imagine how much they would be worth today, Oh it makes me sick at times to think, they were so rare....never mind, I still LOVE anything sci-fi....lol....

Andrea said...

Wow Mina, she looks stunning - I love the colour of the papers you've used. The image reminds me of my niece with all that hair, especially when she is staying with my brother and he is unable to bring her hair under control LOL!
Safe journey home!
Love, Andrea xx

Your cards are wonderful Mina and I so enjoy visiting your blog. I have NEVER seen anyone color the way you do. Absolutely grand. My husband and I enjoy England so much and your pictures this morning made me want to pay your beautiful country, so full of history, another visit. Oh well. And Yes! I would love to go through that house. I am sure it is haunted - LOL!
Merry Christmas
