Vintage Travel for MMM

Hi Folks,

I always seem to be running out of time these days and entering cards at the last minute, I've got a day to spare for this one, so not much change!

The theme this month at Make My Monday has been Vintage, and as regular readers may have guessed, I do like vintage.  This week its Vintage Travel but I must admit I struggled at bit as I didn't want to use my IndigoBlu stamps - again (I did use the map - again)  I've used a Crafty Individuals image, which was stamped twice, cut out the car and attached with foam pads after colouring and rubbing all over with Frosted Lace Stickles to give a sheen. The sentiment is TH .
For the background I used 3 different masks and Frayed Burlap DI.  The letters are cut with TH Vintage Market die.

  I am also entering this into:
  Charizma Cards - For the Guys
  Its all about the Vintage - Brown Tones
  My time to Craft - Transport

Thats it for now, need my beauty sleep - I'm up early tomorrow - going with DD, DiL to look at Wedding Dresses! 

Before I go, I would just like to say 'hello' to my new followers, I really do appreciate you visiting my blog.

A wonderful male card Avril. I love the colours, they really stand out against the softness of the background.

It's so hard not to use your favourite stamps over and over isn't Avril. I love this Crafty Individuals one though, it makes a great mens card. The stencilled compass in the background is gorgeous.
What a lovely way to spend your day and very special too. Did you find anything??
Hugs Lisax

You do vintage so well, you can tell it is a favourite of yours. I love all of your elements and final project is perfect. Thanks for sharing with us again at MMM. Caz
PS You missed a great bargain at R.M on Sunday,CI stamps at half price. I looked around for you. Who is the wedding dress for? Sorry so curious.

Delicious vintage style - the map and car layers are great, but it's that fab background that really caught my eye... wonderful!

Hi Avril! Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning. I realized this morning that I forgot to give credit for the image of the girl on my card, which I will correct shortly. She is from Rubber Stampede. Your travel card is impeccable. I've not worked with this CI stamp. It's now on my wish list! Best wishes, Yvonne
