Model T Ford

Hi everyone, well looks like the rare glimpse of sun yesterday was a one off, back to the constant rain...I've noticed that when I decide to tackle my mountain of ironing it turns sunny and warm...just shows how often I do it! I used to keep on top of it at one point but the onset of Fibromyalgia last year made me hate it. I ironed all morning and then decided I needed to cut the grass in the afternoon. My garden is slightly uphill and our mower isn't self propelled so it's hard work, as a result I'm a bit sore today so I'm having an easy day. Anyway enough whinging, here's my card share for today...

 The stamp is Papermania Nostalgia Classic Cars (Model T Ford). I stamped using Momento Rich Cocoa ink and edged with Frayed Burlap distress ink. I also added an eyelet to the tag. I've made this for my Father-in-law's birthday next week.

  2. Hi Helen!
    Your masculine card is wonderful. I love that vintage image and how you've stamped onto the tag as a supporting element to it. It looks terrific.
    I hope you didn't wear yourself out too much!! Those push mowers are a LOT of work.
