Vintage Time


Hi everyone :) long time no blog as it were...and right now not sure if this will be the last one I do for awhile I'm still struggling with a lot of issues and I'm afraid my crafting will have to take a back seat..where once it helped me to forget about stress and DH and health issues ..this time it's not. Anyway enough waffling this card I've made is for the Vintage challenge that our lovely Lizzie set up for us in our Christmas Card Club..all the girls blogs are on the left of my blog if you want to have a wander over..amazing talents all of them. I used some of the beautiful lace on here that my fairy godmother Jenny sent me I thought it was very apt for a vintage card (Love her to bits she's been a rock). When I was dragging myself into my craft room to make this I realised I hadn't made the card challenge for last time and I must apologise to the lovely Sylvie for that. TFL huggles xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Sue,
me little blogging mate. Sorry I missed this yesterday didn't get to blog much yesterday and not much today either. I have joined a singing group, now I can hear you laughing from hear. I am so dreadfully sorry you're still not felling too good. I am going to have sack that magic wand it supposed to have made you A OKAY by now. lol. Seriously I hope you will soon be feeling strong enough to craft again on a regular basis. I can't have my little blogging mate feeling poorly.
Your card is amazing and very superb as usual. Love the colours used and the design is just fabulous. I also love that image too and it goes well with the lace.
Sending you big hugs and get well wishes to make you feel a little better.
I'm going to try blowing some fairy dust your way instead of that naughty magic wand that doesn't seem to be working.
Lots of crafty love, big hugs, and kisses. Fairy Godmother Jenny L.

Karen Petitt said...

Sue I'm so sorry to hear that you are having such a rotten time atm. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help but don't make yourself craft hun - you'll end up not liking it if you do. Make sure that you rest, you have my details if you need an ear to listen. Beautiful card and your friend was right - the lace is perfect for a vintage card. Big hugs to you both Karen x
