Hope you are all having a lovely tuesday. I am currently stranded at home due to my incompetence at purchasing a new washing machine, I really thought I had measured correctly! but we had it delivered sunday, unpacked it, slotted it into the space where a washing machine goes and shut the doors that hide the machine, well I say shut, there lies the problem, the doors don't actually shut! So I am currently making copous cups of tea for for the lovely Paul who is currently moving electrics and plumbing to enable the washer to fit in. Note to self "dont buy a washer with a large knob on the front again" lol if I did at least it would now fit.

Anyway onto the card I made yesterday to enter into the secret crafter saturday challenge where the challenge this week is RED, WHITE & BLUE following the Jubilee celebrations, oh we do do Pomp and Ceremony well here in the UK.

I have just recieved 3 of the Mabel Lucie Attwell stamp sets, I had to get them as they remind me so much of my childhood when her books were my favourites. The stamp I have chosen to use first is the "Friends" stamp set.

I have made the card using a Kraft card blank to add that vintage feel.
Papers are Portabello Road
Image has been coloured with Copics then totally covered with vintage photo D.I. with an ink duster to again give that vintage look (love those ink dusters for more subtle effect) 
Doo Hickey bunting die
Whimsey circular sentiment
buttons from my stash

As I am off work this week I hope to get plenty of crafting in but usually my plans go haywire so we will see.
thanks for looking
