Teddy Bo Challenge, two Vintage cards and a blog award...

Hi Everyone,

It's another Teddy Bo Challenge and the theme for this week's is IN THE PINK, so your main color must be pink, of course. I made this card using my new toy...The Zutter distressing tool.
I must say that I loooove how fast you can distress almost anything in just a few seconds. Is unbelievable! I bought my new tool in here and you can also see the video in how to use it.

Stamp: "My Cup of Tea"
Papers: Je t'Adore Collection from making Memory.
Tools: Zutter Distressing tool, Crop-A-Dile.
Embellishments: Eyelets, pearls, floss and gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Inks: Distress Ink from Tim Holtz.

Also I want to show you my new vintage cards. I don't know if they look "vintage" enough with those strong colors, but I have to admit that I'm happy with the final result. :)

And last but not least, I have been passed this award by the sweet Tammy. Thank you so much sweetie... :)The award is aimed at bringing unknown good blogs to light, I am honoured to think that someone thinks my blog is good enough for this award and happily accept it. There are a couple of conditions to follow in accepting, and they are:

1. If you have been tagged, do you want to accept, then you have to create a post on your blog and post the love blog photo.
2. Choose 3-5 of your favorite blogs to tag, link these in your blog too and tell the lucky people they have been tagged.

There are lots of lovely blogs out there and its very difficult to choose, every blog deserves an award and I would love to pass this on to every blog I visit, but the aim is bringing unknown blogs to light and these 5 fab blogs are my choice.

1- Martica. Her Victorian and Vintage creations are STUNNING!!! She sent me a few days ago a paper bag album for my daughter and I was amazed by the amount of details and love she put into. Thank you my friend!!! If you want to see the album she sent me you can check her blog here. Is gorgeous, but I must say the pictures do not make justice, in real life is even prettier.

2- The sweet Debbie . She is another amazing vintage artist. Her paper bag albums and tags are GORGEOUS!!! Full of details and stunning color combination's.

3- My dear friend Jenny. She just started a blog where she show her gorgeous LO's, cards and organization tips. I must say she's making a super amazing scrap-house... Yes, is not a scrap-room, is an scrap-house. How cool is that??? I can't wait to see the final result. :)

4 and 5- Mona and Johanna, both of them have an amazing talent to make vintage cards , tags and LO's. Thank you girls for the inspiration and for all the great ideas. You are both so talented!
