Week #16 - A Very Vintage Christmas

*** EDITED*** The winner of Lesley's Forever Friends kit, picked by random number generator was #2 who was Lynda. Congratulations Lynda, enjoy your prize. Please could you email Lesley with your addy! :o)

Wow!!! We had a fantastic response to Frosty last week, and there are so many fabulous Snowmen out there and we are so grateful to you all for showing them to us! Thank You to everyone who played along with our theme last week!

Straight into Week 17 now and we are doing Vintage - whatever that means to you, we would love to see how you put Vintage into your Christmas projects. And this week we are blessed with TWO fabulous guests who have prepared samples to help inspire you. Gro and Sherry have very kindly agreed to join us this week - here's a bit about the girls and their fabulous samples:

Gro - "I'm 37 and from Norway where I live with my husband and two sons. I made my first card about 5 years ago, and have ever since been addicted to this hobby. I love making cards and also different boxes and gift bags:) I design for Art Pieces Challenges, an ATC challenge blog, but was very excited when Winter Wonderland started, you see, I love Christmas!!!"

and Sherry - My name is Sherry although some friends and family call me Sherryann. I am married to Joe for 34 years now and have a son named Justin. I have been cardmaking/scrapbooking for about 10 years off and on. I love the look of vintage cards and have been doing them for about a year now.
Go and check out their blogs to see some more of their gorgeous creations.
Also this week we have another fab giveaway from our regular sponsor, Regina, at The Cutting Cafe. One very lucky player will be the winner of 3 of Regina's fantastic kits, of their choice. Both of our Teri's have used Regina's templates to make gorgeous gift bags as you will see below. For more samples and details of The Cutting Cafe, click on the link on our sidebar - go see for yourself how fabulous they are!
Here now are the samples from the rest of the team for this week's theme:
