GDT @ Make My Monday - Vintage Travel



Sooooo......... this is my last card today as a GDT for Make My Monday, and its gone so fast ! :)  Thanks so much ladies for having me, the challenges have been really inspirational and I have enjoyed every one ! :)
 
The theme this week is 'Vintage Travel Around the World'.  This was another challenge that had me rooting through my stash as I knew I didnt have any stamps that would fit the bill.  I do however have heaps of vintage ephemera and old images but as they are part of my 'treasured stash' I dont like to use them ! lol :D
 
I found an old paper pad from Crafty Individuals with quite an eclectic mix of vintage images and just mixed them with some MME Paris and Co papers, Flowers from WOC and  MS Deco Fan PATP. 
 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for all the lovely comments on my last card and my blogger issues.  I know I get quite hissy over blogger changes, and am extremely reluctant to even entertain the idea of changing my browser to google chrome - I dont think I should have too ;)  I suspect most of my issues are to do with very slow satellite internet, and thats not something I have a choice over, so I will just have to 'get on with it' :D lol !

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Wild Orchid Crafts - Autumnal colours
 
I hope everyone has a smashing week, and I will be popping along to catch up later,

Beautifully vintage & a real treat of colours - whitewashed shabby chic are the words springing to mind. Your combination of sewing & wood works superbly in this one.
I WILL NOT MOVE TO CHROME!!!! but thankfully I love Safari so that's what I've settled for. I don't particularly like my ventures into Firefox but have to do it sometimes for internet courses.
