Vintage/Vacation Card

Good morning folks ....

Wow is it cold here in Newcastle today .... The days have gone from absolutely beautiful spring weather to cold, miserable, turn the heater on weather .... Not happy but a very good excuse to put on my flannelette pj's and stay holed up inside and 'play' lol.

Today I thought I would share with you a card that I made with my Tiddly Inks "Gunna Miss You" digi stamp .... I just love it and she is so much fun to colour ...

(Hat: BG96/93, RV95/93/91 ... Hair: C7/5/3 ... Dress: RV95/93/91 ... Suitcase: E79/77/E71)
I'm going to enter her into the following challenges:
(Congrats to these guys for their first challenge!)

Hope you like my effort and as usual, until next time ...
Ciao, Julie
