Don't know how it is with you, but up North it's freezing!  We had hail showers over the weekend and a cold northerly wind, Brrr indeed!

So once I tidied up the garden a bit, picking up loads of fallen leaves, and washed the car, what else was there to do but craft!

Today's card was made some time ago though and is for the latest Ooh La La Challenge set by Pauline and it's

Not one of my favourite themes I have to confess probably cause I'm never too sure what makes a card vintage, is it an old fashioned pic, the embellishments used or a colour scheme followed, so I guess we'll leave the interpretation up to you!

I went with an old sort of image - well who wears aprons like that these days???

Brown Sugar - Anything goes
Everybody Art Challenge - Vintage
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Anything Goes

A super card Janice, such a sweet image and lovely design.
My mum still wears aprons like the one in the image and she's 88 years old (that must be vintage) - no teddy in the pocket though!

Who wears an apron like that? I do!!! Well not exactly like that it is large cow print with pink ties that I wear when I am baking as I tend to be a right messy devil!! Anyway, your card is gorgeous and definitely vintage in style. Those corners look lovely together with the cute yesteryear pinny wearing bear!! xx

Hi Janice, sorry I'm so late visiting… but glad I didn't miss this card… it's SO sweet and as you know I love everything vintage! this fits the theme perfectly. The image is really cool.. reminds me of children's books from 60s. Love those fab ornate corners too! ;-)
Hope you are doing ok my friend
