Hi, I hope that all the youngsters out there in the UK got the exam results that they wanted!!!!

I have made a birthday card for a special friend featuring this lovely image from Crafty Secrets (Heartwarming Vintage Collection).  Can you see a little boy this size carrying a turkey/chicken like that???  No, I can't either hahaha!  But he is cute!

 The backing papers are by October Afternoon...just loving their papers at the moment.  I used KATHY'S WAFFLE SKETCH FOR AUGUST for the design.  Kathy has some fabulous sketches over on that blog & a wonderful DT to go with it!!!

The card is for my lovely friend JANICE who is a digital scrapbooking genius and also a wonderful just have to pop over to see it all!!!

Thanks for looking today, HUGS XXX

Even though those papers individually don't have a vintage feel to them you have managed to create a vintage looking card by blending them- very clever of you my lovely girl :-)
Love the sentiment you've used as well.
Maybe he can hold that heavy bird because of all the strength and balance practice he's had sweeping chimneys?

Hello my friend!!

I had to pop in to say what a gorgeous card you have made I do so love those images from Heartwarming Vintage.

Hope you are well and that life is all about the trimmings and not the turkey down there in Cornwall!!

Love Ruth x

I can't see a boy carrying it more like eating it! lovely card for your lucky friend!
Just read your comments on Gini's Dress Up and I'm seriously considering doing a 'backs' show and tell or a fashionista fess-up! I think I've only managed to finish one of my dresses properly, as for the wardrobe, well erm... Mx

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Isn't amazing how many of us 'dabble' at all sorts of crafts? I too have done upholstery [in fact I did the chair I'm sitting on to type this :-) ]. Not tried basketry [yet!]. Tatting? I tried to teach myself but failed hopelessly. So many crafts so little time eh? :-)
Have fun. Hugs,
