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.

Quick and Simple

A really simple and quite plain card for a few challenges.

Time for crafting has been very limited I have been catching up on recording lots of information in my family tree, still need to make a few trips to the library in a nearby town to see if I can have an article  from the local newspaper microfiche from 1898 copied, I would like to take it to a family member who was unaware of this great uncle. If they can't copy it I will take notes then type them up.

Snow Flake

Hubby and James were in Aberdeen yesterday bringing home more boxes for Douglas and Vicki's move, everything will be loaded into my neighbours van then back to Aberdeen. Their new flat is on Union St. and there are loads of parking restrictions, so it was decided to try and drop everything with one stop. Hubby has phoned the Traffic warden dept. and has permission to unload in the evening.
Here's hoping it all goes according to plan.

Hearts Come Home For Christmas

Another C&S card I am determined to use up some of the stash that's been stored forever. This is a very old rub-on bought when I started crafting .

Papermania card embossed with a Cuttlebug folder then sanded lightly.

Challenges I have used my die to emboss the white cardstock


Two cheery snowmen to brighten a miserable morning here in North East Scotland. We had a beautiful day yesterday but it is really dreich today.

Many thanks to all those who sent their best wishes to hubby. He's recovering well after his altercation with a Highland cow, the stiffness and bruises are beginning to ease and fade, He still has headaches from the bump to his forehead and feels washed out. We are both grateful it wasn't a lot worse.
 Heading to Aberdeen later to bring home boxes our son has packed in preparation for his move to a new flat, we're also inheriting 4 snakes, I have handled one of them before but am not looking forward to feeding them.
