Vintage Young Lady!

Good Morning Everyone, Are you all well today, hope you are.  Thank you all for the kind comments about my last card, I always look forward to them and feel much encouraged by them, also for the words of support re. the car. I would also like to welcome my latest follower Jenny to my blog and encourage others to pop in to see her as she has lovely creations there, so great to meet you Jenny.

It's not stopping Alistair from getting to places, he was out at the cinema last night with Sean who came to pick him up and away to the hills at crack of dawn in another friends car, not to mention he has his bus pass.  It's me who is a bit stuck, I don't yet have a buss pass and I baulk at paying the horrendous  bus fares that stagecoach charge up here.  Moan over for today, promise!!

I, however had a lovely night in with my G&T and "The Big Country", one of my fave films with the wonderful Gregory Peck and Charlton Heston, not to mention Elmer Bernstein's fantastic music, and if that wasn't enough I discovered "Borgan" is back with a new series.  I'm a real fan of all things Scandinavian and I got really hooked when this drama was on before.

I had a lovely comment left on an earlier blog from Ignacio from who very kindly offered me some free images from her designs. I couldn't choose there are so many lovely ones there so I said I was happy for her to make the choice, and here is a card I made with one of the lovely images;
The Image was already coloured, but I found some vintage paper for the background and co-ordination card Beautiful ruffled ribbon and pearls from The Ribbon Girl, Victorian Corner from Memory Box ( fast becoming a favourite) and the sentiment is LOTV.

Do pop in to Nicecrane Designs as there is so much to see and it all has a vintage theme. I have fellow blogger May to thank for this new found design store, so thank you May!

That's me for today, I really must go and get out of the dressing gown it's almost midday, shocking or what!

Enjoy your Sunday,  Kate x

Hi Kate,
what a superb card and image. Love it all.
I do hope your car gets fixed soon.
I remember when I didn't have a bus pass and my hubby did as he is 10yrs older than me. I hated paying my fare on the bus because of the cost.
Have a wonderful crafty Sunday afternoon.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

I have to make sure there is cover for looking after the girls if I take time off. Patricia and i love nothing better than making plans and getting the best deals.. November would be better more time to plan. Hazel
