French vintage

Tonight I thought I'd have  a break from making Christmas cards and use my new Justrite Paris background stamp and I'm loving it!  stamps beautifully, this time I've used the whole stamp but can see it being useful just using parts of it, the two crafty individual ladies are enjoying their Paris trip I'm sure.  Had a lovely day at the Harrogate GNP last Saturday and enjoyed meeting up with some bloggers again and also ones I hadn't met before, its always lovely to meet people who I have only known on line before, also caught up with several other craft people who I don't see very often now I don't get to the Craft club I used to go to. Came home with far too much new stash again considering I had already over indulged at Port Sunlight the week before, so many stamps, so little time !!!!

    Oh heck, you bought that stamp that I was pondering on - and what a fab card you have made with it. Love the colouring you have done and the torn edges. Good luck with it in the challenges.
