This week we are being sponsored by Laura's Vintage Garden on Etsy. Look at this beautiful vintage prize package, don't you wish you are the lucky winner?

Here's a little about our fabulous sponsor Laura Vigliarolo

I love Vintage anything, and love to create wit it. So here are some of my items I have created. I do used some newer items in my creations.
I love making jewelry with some old broken pieces I have found along with new findings. The ribbons I used in y flowers are both old and new from all over the world.
I love going to estate sales and antique stores, the treasure finding is as much fun as creating with the treasures. If you like finding vintage treasures you should check out my partner in crimes etsy site at www.papertales.etsy.com. She has LOTS of fun goodies there.
My digital sheets are high quality pdf files, for some reason I cannot pass up a photo at any sale. They are from my collection and the other ephemera are ones I used in my classes. I taught classes or years and was always asked to sale my items and now have decided to. Please have as much fun with them as I have had. I do ship international, you just need to convo me for a shipping rate.

Thanks Laura, for sponsoring us once again!

To Play Along
Upload your creation to your blog or online gallery (if you add your photo to an online gallery, please use code CCCB#42 so we could easily find your creation, then link here with the direct link (not your entire blog). Don't forget to link back to our blog so more people can join in the fun!

Challenge ends February 7, 2011 at 11.59 PM (EST)
We would love you to play along , so come on and join us!
I am sorry that we have to change our linking system again, Linky Tools decided that we have to pay a fee to use their system. City Crafter Challenge Blog is just a fun place for crafters to come here and enjoy, and to be inspired by other crafter's work, we are not making any profit out of this challenge blog, as a bonus to all who join us, we do have a prize every single week, and that is the work of devoting my time in finding sponsors, or even come out from my own pocket, and the generous sponsorship from our DT and friends, at this point of time, I really do not wish to pay for some linking system and add an extra cost for having City Crafter Challenge Blog, so we are going for Mister Linky, a free linking system, I know it is not your most favorite in the market, but please bear with us for using a linking system without the thumbnail. If you do come across any free and fabulous linking system, I want to hear about it! But for now, this is what we could offer. Thanks!
If you have difficulties  using Mister Linky, please feel free to email citycrafter@gmail.com, we will try our best to help you with your questions.
