Vintage Childhood

Hello again, it's that time of night again when my son and hubby are snoring away and the two dogs are tucked up in their little beds in the laundry and there is just me and the hum of the computer!!! It has been a funny day today weather wise with rain this morning and then a lovely spring day this afternoon and then back to being a bit cool tonight. Enough to make me go and put another layer of clothes on.
I picked up Isaac this morning and then went and picked up a friend who didn't have a ride to craft today. We had to stop at the chemist to fill a couple of prescriptions for me on the way to craft. I pick up Isaac about 30 mins before craft starts, so had enough time to do it. Only two of us but it was the last day of term, we now have a two week break and then I will be teaching a few projects for Christmas and will have a couple of extra people on my table.
It was nice not to have to rush everything tonight, we had a late tea because our DIL was quite late coming to pick Isaac up. No choir practise and nothing else to rush off to!!!
My card for tonight was made using a freebie Vintage stamp from Pamela at Free Vintage Digital Stamps blog. Thanks to Cynthia for the whereabouts of this digi.
Here it is:

Pale Blue Cardstock from stash for basecard
DPs from Prima ~ Londonerry Collection  6x6 paper stack~ I used 4 different papers.
Free Digi Image
mpress nesting dies - Victorian Frame
SU Ballet Blue inkpad-sponged edges of purple DP and diecut on inside
SU Early Espresso inkpad - sponged edges of large pieces of DP - front and inside
SU Embosslits - Scallped Heart of Hearts
Sentiment from SU Petite Pairs
Copic Markers
Small wide oval punch
