  1. Your vintage cards are probably my favorite (with a close 2nd being your elegant cards)! I just finished making a card with a Tim Holtz paper doll that I wanted to make in a vintage/mixed media style. After struggling a lot with it I finally finished it and love the way it turned out. Definitely worth the time and effort. Thanks so much for your encouragement and inspiration!! This card is great! Somewhat simple to make but such a great impact. I so enjoy watching you create vintage and it gives me so many ideas to try. Thank you, Vicky, and have a great weekend!!
