I know I have been missing for a few weeks, which has been to current work (bill paying) load, but I am glad to say I am back in a much less hectic position. 
Our challenge for this week is 
I recently purchased Tim Holtz matchbook die from Sizzix UK who had a mega sale, spent £18 on a few things saved £78, now that is the sort of sale we all like!!!
So had to use it for this challenge.
I love using colour in my projects but I have gone all vintage and neutral for this one.

  2. Great folding, but the stamping and colouring is stunning Amanda!

  3. Amanda!! This is totally brilliant! I love all things vintage, so love this for that reason, but also because it is about writing--another passion of mine! Beyond that, I love playing with words, so you're N.B. sent me into overload! Three home runs in my book!

  4. Great make, I love vintage too ! Wonderful !
