Hosting a giveaway, Sharing some Retro style Christmas cards and Part two of my Junk Salvation photos

I was thinking it would be a good time to host a giveaway, so from today thru next Monday Dec 2 if you leave a comment in this post, your name will be tossed in the hat for a chance to win the goodies below.   Huge thanks to Crafty Secrets for these products!
                                       Giveaway open until Dec 2ndv 2013
 
Over the years I have made .. well, lets just say "many" cards using Crafty Secrets images, stamps, papers ect. As I look back thru my files sometimes I see some that I have completely forgotten about .. like the ones below.  I thought I'd share them with you.    Here is a list of what I used to create them.  When I made these CS didn't have digital stamps yet..but now the Atsy Banners Stamp set is Digital.  I have the supplies linked below :)
              Creating with Vintage Patterns CD     Digital Artsy Banners stamps 


These papers and images just make me happy.   This CD came out before the Christmas CD's, and the papers still worked great. But if your interested in great Christmas papers, images and other goodies on a CD now Crafty Secrets has
Creating with Vintage Christmas and Creating with Retro Christmas



Simply because I'm crazy obsessed with taking photos and sharing them , especially of fun events like this one, .... I'm sharing the second set of photos from Junk Salvation :)



Enjoy looking , even if you cant buy...  I know it's hard, but I was in the same boat for the most part.  All I had was suitcases and they were pretty full the way it was. I only saw about a 100 things I wanted :(

I did pick up a couple of small things .. and mailed two things home.  One was this frame  ( a little nervous because it hasn't arrived yet) eek


and the other was something I picked up for my friend Deb. She collects globes, and when I saw this awesome lighted globe for only $20 I knew she would want it. I was right. lol  I was so wanting to see a photo of it lit up at night.. so she sent me this.

Okay.. so here are some photos of the other booths at the show












 
Eye candy everywhere!
 
Remember Crafty Secrets is having a Black Friday week long sale so check it out here on the Heartwarming Vintage Blog!
 
 
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
