Lol, this is one of those cards I made and uploaded, but never quite got round to writing a post for!

Well it's out there now, and was actually for my niece's birthday in March last year, so it was about time it got an airing!  Sorry for the lack of post initially!

Birthday Celebrations

It's nearing the end of November, and that means Christmas Break time for the DT over at Ooh La La, but before we go, we have one last challenge for 2016 and it's bee set by Wynn and is...

Birthday Celebrations

Cause Wynn celebrates her birthday at this time of year - Happy Birthday Wynn.

For my card I went back to the Everyday Occasion's CD and picked this sweet teddy bear!  Not too seasonal I know, with sunflowers, but a little bit of sunshine always cheers you up on these dark Winter days!

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???
