A Little Late

Where has this week gone, I've seemed to have been driving here there and everywhere this week and forgot all about my little place here.  I am a very lucky person in having a fab mother-in-law who loves the cards I make and this is the one I sent her.


The image I found on a brilliant site here called The Sum of All Crafts and you can find some amazing vintage style pictures that can be downloaded for free. I framed it very simply in a dull gold die cut. The background paper is from Kanban called Apricot Dreams and it's gorgeous apricot and grey designs.  The flower is a Rose Creation by Spellbinders with several coats of Glossy Accents.  The seam binding was coloured with a Promarker pen and I've used a self generated greeting mounted on a Spellbinders die.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-

One Stop Craft Challenge #175 ~ Clean and Simple.
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #178 Shabby Chic/Vintage
