I've got caught up with my charity card making marathon, they are selling , a bit slower than I had hoped but plenty of time. The staff at the hairdressers where I sell them have changed and they are mostly a lot younger than the previous stylists but really nice girls , I'm told they all love the vintage cards I put in there, they are the ones I thought least likely to sell, you never can tell ! Anyhow on the vintage theme here's a fun card I made last night .Image and postcard are Graphic 45 and background paper is Crafty Individuals as is the wording stamp. I'm entering this on Cards For Guys, don't see
why the fellows can't have some  bright colours and a Bathing Belle , I'd have no problem sending this to a man to cheer him up !
