Sugar Creek Hollow Week 59 Numbers and Letters

Hello Friends!!
Happy Saturday!!
This is my second post of the please click here to see my lovely Vintage Rose Pin Tutorial that I created.

It is week 59 at Sugar Creek Hollow, and our theme this week is Numbers and Letters. We would like to see you use both letters and numbers in your Vintage or Shabby Chic creations.
I used both letters and numbers on my 
Charm Card holder below.
I used all kinds of words (on the images and a stamp), and then I used a date stamp for the numbers.
I made the charms for a swap that I am participating in over in the Black Cat Forum!  I am so excited because I will be swapping charms with some of my favorite Black Cat Cougar Peeps!! 
 Lisa (she set up the swap), Penny, Elizabeth, Retta, and some other new peeps.  I can't wait to see what everyone creates!!

For my charms I used some images from Gecko Galz.  Inked the edges with Ranger's Vintage Photo.   Each charm image measures One inch long.
I used Art Glitter Just Peachy around the edges of the charm above.  I also covered it with Utee.
This one I covered with Utee as well.
 I used the brown sugar baker's twine from 
Really Reasonable Ribbon 
wrapped between two holes I punched with my crop o dile to hold up my charms.

I altered all the images in GIMP, and I used a piece of Core'dinations kraft cardstock, and an edge embossing folder.  I sanded and inked with Ranger Vintage Photo. 
 Remember that the challenges will be every other week

I can't wait to see your Words and Number creations!!
Thank you for visiting!!
