Charisma wants you to MATCH 'EM UP!

hey there folks! i can't believe it's already THURSDAY! that means the week is FLYING by for me, and i'm another week closer to the craft fair (and no nearer to being ready, natch!), and we're one week closer to CHRISTMAS, and daylight savings is upon us here... yikes! can you believe this weekend is HALLOWE'EN?! crazy.

well being that it's THURSDAY, it also means it's CHARISMA CHALLENGE DAY! i was on "DT holiday" last week as i was down at the shorehouse with my english penpal (we two merrily crafted for days on end!), but the entries for our Vintage Challenge were unbelievably gorgeous! it's always so nice to see how differently everyone approaches the vintage style, and i think it's safe to say that NO stone was left unturned for this one! thanks for playing along!

hope you'll be just as enthusiastic about this week's challenge - not only is it super fun (and great for the upcoming holidays!), but we have a brand new SPONSOR!

SO first, the challenge?

we want to see you create two things that go together... like a journal and bookmark, ornament and candle, tag and gift bag, etc....

i went for the card and envelope combination... i know you've seen me use this image before from Stamp Camp, but i love it, so... :p

(click pic to enlarge!)

you can go SO many different routes with this challenge, so let's see what magic you'll work!
