Introducing Ivy

Hi everyone, just a quickie from me today, I am running sooo behind, I went to take pics today and my camera would not work, I nearly died (yeah, I tend to overreact) I changed the batteries and all was good again :) the kids have just wandered into the study covered in chalk dust and we have to all be cleaned and changed and ready to leave the house in 27 minutes... I might make it, lol!! 
Anyways, today I am previewing Ivy from Tickled Pink Stamps new Christmas collection, I am loving all their vintage goodness. I was going to make a card and at some point along the way it turned into a wall hanging. It is about 6 inches across, the papers are all last years Christmas papers from Kaisercraft (I bought heaps of it last year and hardly got around to using any of it and most of it is in delicious deep colours, perfect with these vintage inspired images)  I have used tea to dye my doily following Kellies instructions here (thanks boss lady, it's a fabulous technique) The sentiment and frame are from the Vintage Christmas Sentiments set. The flowers and bits and bobs are all from my stash. I have inked and glittered my edges and I think that is just about everything :)
I have 18 minutes to go and two very impatient children, LOL!! Make sure you head on over hear and check out the DT inspirational work!!
