Vintage Christmas





It's a long time since I made a vintage / shabby chic card, but it meant that I could use up lots of little bits of leftover paper.
 Started the dreaded Christmas shopping as well this weekend, my gifts either need to ready for the second week in October, when I am going to Renfrewshire to visit my mother or be posted.
 I am also going to Edinburgh at the end of October for the day taking the 6am train down arriving at 9.30 and returning on the 7.30 pm, it will be a long day , train tickets are booked and I am looking forward to the day out shopping.
