Vintage Romance

I made this card for the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge of a Touch of Romance this week but the challenge hasn't posted on the site yet - I found the theme from the blogs of Fairy Elise and Fairy Jayne.


I must have splashed out at some point and bought these beautiful V&A Collection linen papers.  They are truly gorgeous and the photo doesn't do justice to the colours or texture.

The image is LOTV Meant To Be and I stamped in a new Memento colour called Grey Flannel.  It has given a much softer, more vintage look to the image.


Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers).  The sentiment is also LOTV and I've used, although it is hard to see in the picture, my favourite Martha Stewart border punch.

Why is it every time I descale a kettle we have to buy a new one?  Last time I did it we ended up with water everywhere, this time the switch has gone.  Perhaps it should be renamed as Kettle Kill.

Right, time for the final stage of this year's Tour de France where, all being well, Bradley will cross the line safely to be a British winner!

And then, it'll be BBC highlights of the German Grand Prix.  Come on Jenson!

This just beautiful hun! The colouring is just fabulous and I love this new grey colour - may have to splash out and get me some! When the beast is older I may turn up on your doorstep and demand colouring lessons! She's decided she's a squirrel by the way and is pretending to have a mouth full of nuts - I have NO words. How did I end up with a crazy kid? Hugs and a super Tour de Whoop from me, Jayne xx
