The Heart That Loves......

Afternoon peeps!

Firstly I must just apologise for my absence from my blog and from blogland in general - I move house in two weeks and so life is just frantic!! This is my second house move in six months and I hope we'll be staying put now for a while as it is very stressful trying to pack up your life!!!

Anyway, here is another vintage card I made recently as I'm loving this style at the minute.

I used Prima papers, a Spellbinders frame die and Woodware punches..... plus some gorgeous antique lace I picked up in my local market.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

EAC - Distress

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Deep Ocean Challenge - Anything Goes

Stampin' Sisters In Christ - Use Something New (Spellbinders Frame)

Bearly Mine - Anything Goes

ASFOS - Here Comes Summer

Well that's all from me for today - thanks so much for stopping by ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
