We're doing "Vintage" this week at Mo's!

Wheet whoo!! It's Thursday already . . . and time for another fun challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! This week, my talented friend and DT sistah, Cathy is hostess!! And she's chosen one of my all-time fave themes . . .

And, of course, since I'm in full Christmas mode these days, well what can I say? Here's a little "vintage" Christmas card!
This fabulous Mo Manning image is called "Ragged Santa" . . . and you can find him HERE in Mo's online store. I just love him . . . and think he's perfect for this week's "vintage" theme! What do you think? Here's a closer look . . .
I feel as though many of my cards lately have been rather "under-embellished" . . . and that's sooooo not like me!! But . . . ta da . . . NOT THIS ONE! hehe!! Here's a bit of a side view . . .
