Going Vintage....

Well.. what a fabby weekend we had..

Saturday we did the garden... filled my baskets full (and I mean fulll lol) of flowers, swept it and made it look tidy... went out for a mooch in the shops and out for tea.... then on Sunday we went to Thomas land (a theme park based on Thomas the tank engine). Obviously this was for Belle.. although we loved it too!!

As it's only 15-20 mins away from our house we got annual passes so I am guessing we will be there quite often over the summer lol... Belle loves it. She wants to ride everything and really has NO FEAR!!!!!

And.... while I was on holiday I popped in a craft shop (well it would have been rude not too lol) and I got the Tim Holtz distress pens... I have been practising a lot at colouring with them... so I had a few hours when Belle went to bed when I sat and made a card...

This is Tutu cute lili from Inky impressions
The sentiment is also from Inky too
The flowers, pins, seam binding, metal corner and also the cameo were from Wild orchid crafts
The papers are a freebie from a magazine - websters pages

I covered it all with Tim Holtz distress paint to make it even more vintagy lol

I am entering this into:
