Old Crock!

Here is a large (8*8) but fairly simple card I made for a friend’s milestone birthday, which actually happened last year during first lockdown so sadly we couldn’t all celebrate together. It was also during the period when I wasn’t blogging so hasn’t been published on here before.

This vintage car stamp (“Old Crock”!) holds fond memories as I first used it to make an 80th birthday card for my dear late dad back in 2008 (which was also the subject of my first ever post on this blog!!) so I thought it would be good to give it another outing for another “vintage” milestone!!

Stamps: Butterfly Kisses “Old Crock”; Penny Black4071F “Flourish Birthday”; Lili of the Valley “Everyday Grungy Sentiments”;
Media: Promarkers;
Tools: Spellbinders nest abilities (frame); Provo Craft “Hippie Chick” number dies;
Papers and embellishments from my stash.
