I've been busy........ shopping.

When my OH goes onto his early shifts I don't get much time to make anything. Me 'n the dawg have to be as quiet as church mice as he is a very light sleeper. However, I do spend the time doing all the completely necessary shopping that every crafter is compelled to do! I've been on a stash diet for a month but did treat myself to some new mega Nestabilities.  Also, my darling OH has bought me the Cricut and Gypsy package. This is for Christmas, my birthday etc for the next five years he says. Yeah! Right! I'm looking forward to playing with these.

This little card has been made for one our Red Hat chapter members, Gill,  whose birthday is very soon. The stamp is from the Nostalgia range designed by John Byers and it has such a wistful air about it. Sort of.... have I really got to go to school?   The background is printed directly onto the card and is a Pink Petticoat paper from the Flourishes range in mocha and the image has been stamped with Versafine vintage sepia ink.


I would like this little card to enter the following:
