A bit of a vintage feel...?

It's so very nearly the weekend.  And so very nearly our half term break - yippee!  Now, don't get me wrong, I do love my job - no two days are the same in our school office, the constant stream of boys, staff and visitors in and out all day create a very unique atmosphere (not to mention the fact that it's also part boarding school so many boys and staff live on site too!).  And we can guarantee that there is also plenty of laughter each day!  But we all definitely enjoy our school holidays - and they are welcomed with open arms! And I'm very much looking forward to next week when I will be leaving husband and son home alone and heading down to Sussex to spend a few days with my daughter!

But I've also been making a few cards as we have quite a few birthdays coming up with family and friends.  I decided to use a Tilda stamp that I haven't used for quite a while, and went for a sort of vintage feel with the papers, etc.

I've coloured Tilda with copics and graphit pens and a touch of pencil

The papers are from LOTV, as is the sentiment stamp. I've added some lace and wooden heart from stash, flowers from WOC and die cut leaves (Joanna Sheen dies). 

I quite like the soft feel with this one, and the different textures and I was pleased to find my die cut leaves matched the paper design!  I hope you like it too! 

And I hope you have a good weekend, whatever you have planned.
Back soon,
