Old Jalopy


Despite the freezing cold wind and occasional snow showers people did come out to the craft fair yesterday. although there were less people than before those who did come were buying and I did really well. Sold lots of craft stash too. Although we have had some snow it was nothing like the amount you poor people up north have had.

I seem to have been making a lot of men's cards this week and my DT card for Totally Gorjuss is another male card.  Our them this week is Something Borrowed and we are sponsored by The Ribbon Girl. For my borrowed item I have used some washers from one of hubby's many tins in the garage. Well I say borrowed, he isn't getting them back. I have used four stamps from the Tim Holtz Journey set. I have used DI Vintage Photo and dstressed all the dges. The backing paper is Prima Craftsman, Sizzix embossing folder  with sanded Core'dinations. The stars are K&Co, wheel and gear Tim Holtz, washers from the garage.
