Vintage Blue

Well, I've sniffled through today with a tissue not far from my nose! I went in to the city today with a friend to look for a new handbag at the sales. It is officially a public holiday, but most of the retailers in the city were open and also some of the bigger department stores in the suburbs, but the supermarkets were closed. Not that we lacked food, LOL, still more turkey, ham and pork to be had. I was grateful for having a bought lunch today and just ate a burger!
All the guys in the family have gone to the SpeedWay tonight so I'm home alone and not much on tv so actually decided to sit down and craft instead.
Here is the result,
I've used yet another free digi (have been saving them so thought it would be good to actually use them otherwise it will just be another lot of hoarded craft items to add to the stash. This may be one of my New Year's Resolutions, to use stash items!)
The base card is one of the SU Blues (lost the packaging) and then I've used two DP's from stash and the brown one is from SU and the one going across the middle is the other side of the SU paper. I matted the three top ones with the blue cardstock and then mounted my image which was cut out with a nestie die and backed with blue card which I trimmed to give a very small border. I popped it onto the card with foam dots. I decided I didn't want to put a sentiment on this one.
I am going to enter it into the challenge at Make It Monday #69 - Anything Goes.
and also into the challenge at Top Tip Tuesday#66 - Anything Goes
and Karen's Doodles Challenge #94-Spots & Stripes
Yeah, might even go to bed early tonight, so thanks for stopping by and for the encouraging comments too!
