New beginings


And welcome to Little Vintage Cards, this is my little space of craftiness on the www.  I have to say it's not my first blog, I used to run a wee blog called Fairycake Cards around 2 years ago, but life got busy and I closed it down, but I'm back, I love playing with cards and crafty bits, I just needed some time out, but hopefully I will be back to stay this time :)

A lot has changed in the last two years, not long after I shut down the blog I got engaged, planning is well under way, and I'll be tying the knot in 6 weeks ...Eeeek!  When I shut down the blog I sold a lot of my stash so over the last two weeks I have been shopping to replenish my stash, my poor bank account has had a right bashing, but my crafty stash is looking great!

Anyway onto the good first card...

 Stamp:  Time for tea, by Sarah Kay
Colours: Pro Markers
Ribbon: Old stash
Flowers & Gems: Wild Orchid Crafts

I really adore this stamp, I picked it up in my local craft store, I have always had a love for Sarah Kay stamps and I will definitely be investing in a few more.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:

I've had a great time creating my first card, I think tomorrow I am going to go and pick up some more Sarah Kay stamps and maybe a Big Shot (but dont tell the hubs2b..shhhhh)

Until next time ....
