Vintage Joy at Christmas

We have just spent a long weekend at our son's in Bury St Edmunds and we had a lovely, if very cold time! It wasn't cold in his lovely little bungalow however, but outside it was decidedly parky!
We went to the Christmas Market, which was bustling and I just had to pay a visit to the Stamp Hut, where I bought a few bits and bobs. Among other things, I bought some embossing paste so I'll be having a try out with that soon.
On Saturday evening we went to a concert of Christmas Music in which David was singing and that was great fun. It was just a pity that our DIL Nina couldn't be there, but she has been down at her mother's this week visiting the hospital whilst her mum had a hip replacement operation. All is well there, her mum is home and Nina is now back in Bury.
On to this card... another week and the challenge from My Time to Craft has come round again. The theme this week is Vintage. I chose a Vintage image from Stampn' Up, but decided not to do any distressing.
The sentiment is also from the same SU set. The navy, starry paper is a digi, but I can't remember the source.
I have had real difficulty in getting my mojo up and running since returning home, I just hope inspiration strikes soon.

  12. love that image Chrisse - I thought it was a black peel off as i'm certain i've seen a very similar image in a set of black peel offs on QVC. Its lovely and crisp.

    glad you had a lovely weekend away.
