Vintage sewing

Hello,

Back in the land of blog and here's a card Ive made for my ex MIL from my eldest.  She asked for elderly and floral but knowing Joy as I do I know how she used to love to make everything she could so I managed to use an image that Ive had for a few years from Free Graphics Fairy.


Ive used BG 'Skate Shoppe' papers and I photocopied my tape measure and coloured it with DI.  



I'll leave you with a snap from Easter of DD1 with her Chester who was quite jealous he couldnt get in with her!


Hope to see you again soon
