All Things VintageLilian, Karen and I are all in an Asian/oriental themed mood and I found some lovely free vintage oriental clipart. I have also attached 3 images that I particularly liked from the e-vint image site. The site has been added to our Reading Library for future reference and can be found HERE.

Here’s the challenge: Using either the oriental clipart or something of your own, create a card using just 4 items. The items to include on your card are: ribbon, gems (or pearls), lace and a 4th item of your choice. Upload your card using the tag ATVJUNE12 (all caps) and comment that your card is ready for the group album and slideshow. At the end of June, I will pick a random winner to receive a vintage themed prize from my extensive stash of stuff! Please limit your entries to no more than 3. The random winner's name will be posted on July 1st at 8:00 a.m. EST.
CAS Card GroupOur weekly lessons will continue every Thursday (with the exception of today). I will strive to show you something that is unique and different, but that will only depend on what is in front of me to work with at that time. I’d love to have a monthly group slideshow and post your samples to it! At the end of the month, I’ll pick a random card and award a little prize from my stash. Tag your card CASJUNE12 (all caps) and post a comment that it is uploaded.
Anything But CuteI miss our themed challenges and have presented new ideas to work with during the month of June. Theme categories are as follows:
6/3 Masculine in celebration of Father’s Day or Birthday
6/10 Wedding or White on White
6/17 It’s good to be Queen Birthday (Make it red! Queen's flag color is red and is celebrated 2nd Sat. in June)
6/24 Summer Solstice (6/21) (The longest day of the year) - Make it yellow!
Create a card using all 4 themes OR create 2 out of 4 cards if your time is tight. Those who create all 4 themes will be eligible to be randomly chosen for a really cool prize from my stash. Use the tag ABCJUNE12 (all caps) when uploading and be sure to post a comment for me so I can update the slideshow.
Here's my Masculine card. You don't have to stay in order of the weekly themes when creating your card. I had a belated birthday card due to my nephew so this card is serving a functional purpose!
