Vintage Christmas

Morning lovelies, phew it has been a busy week here ! 
As many of you know we live in an extremely old house, this house has had our blood sweat and tears poured into it but we have made the very hard decision to move, I have Fibromyalgia and arthritis along with other conditions and sadly my body cannot take living in a cold damp house with steep stairs anymore. 
Fingers crossed we may have found the perfect house so we have begun the huge task of sorting out this house….for two people we have the amount of stuff a family of 5, and then we also have all the furbabies to move too….this is going to be a very stressful move ! So please bare with me 🙂 
Anyway now onto my recent card…I am sure most of you have seen the fantastic Vintage Christmas Range from Crafter’s Companion…If not you NEED to check this range out, The CD ROM is amazing, not only does it have tons of gorgeous papers, embellishments, sentiments etc but also some lovely digi stamps and today’s card i have done a simple card using one of the papers and digi stamps from the CD ROM 
I have coloured the image with my Spectrum Noirs (list below) and used Neenah Desert Storm which is perfect for vintage feel. 
The backing paper is from the CD ROM and i made the card blank using Crafter’s Companion Kraft Card , I then distressed all the edges and used Vintage Photo Distress Ink, the twine and button are from my stash and i added some Frantage around the image…I hope you like it 🙂 If you can I highly recommend the embossing folders in this range too, they are fantastic and all my christmas cards will be made using them 🙂

Morning lovelies, I hope you all had a lovely weekend ? It is Bank Holiday here in the uk so i hope everyone will have a lovely day. 
Anyway with it being Monday that means Visible Image day from me. I have used one of the newest stamps from the fab INKognito range and also my trusted Grunge Florish
I used Dylusions Ink Sprays, Distress inks and water to create the background and then stamped part of  Grunge Florish around some of the card, I then stamped Go Where Your Dreams Take You stamp in the center, then to make it pop i used some white paint and highlighted the stamps. 
I hope you like it 🙂
