Vintage Christmas!! What Me? LOLOLOL

Woooohoooo no need to go snow hunting!! We got about 2inches of the lovely stuff, gonna go play after dinner yippee!!!

OH this card has had me in such a pickle for the last two weeks, I even asked Crafty Emma  & Hazel (dido) for help I got myself into such a mess...I don't, well its more of a can't do vintage!! Well after alot of brain bashing & digi hunting (Emma sent me a link to a freebie vintage image but pffffff!!! my printer ran out of ink!!!) I finally decided on a Stitchy Bear image as I think she is beautiful & maybe a bit vintagey....Hazel hun if shes no good you can have her to line Jessies litter tray lol xx
