Vintage Cute

This card features all the things I like , pretty girls in pretty dresses , cute puppies , vintage papers and a dolls house. I made some curtains for my dolls house on Thursday in a pretty pink vintage rose fabric, pity they weren't so easy to make for real size house windows.
The papers and elements are all echo park digis , so into these lately  and the image is a Sarah Kay called " Fanny's Cuddle " , that name makes my hubby laugh , can't think why? I coloured her with pro and flex markers then inked all the papers with brown distress ink for a lovely vintage look.

challenges entered :
Allsorts : vintage
Fussy and fancy : vintage
alphabet challenge : Y is for young card or little one

well what a day of two halves weather wise, set off with my Mum to go to Lady Heyes craft centre ,the sun was shinning , sunnies on in the car, couple of hours later wild wind and hailstones , we were shivering with cold but still managed to shop , we both bought some really lovely bargain vases, glassware, pottery and a picture  , then my Mum treated me to a yummy pub lunch and a pint of real ale. Back home , heating on and arranging my new (antiques) buys.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. janex

This is totally goe]rgeous Jane. Love the design and the image is so sweet.
Got that storm here to just as I was thinking of popping to Trentham. Phew! Wind, rain, hail, ice thunder and lightening just happened. No build up or warning at all. Glad I wasn't out in it.
