Blast from the past!!

Afternoon everyone!!

Finally I am back in blogland after moving house almost a year ago and I have to say I'm really excited to be crafting and posting again. The new house has taken a lot more time and effort than we originally thought and crafting definitely had to take a back seat for quite a long time while I have been tackling bigger projects!! Good news though, we all love the new place so it's worth the effort AND I have finally begun to move into my new craft space, or should I say take over the spare room, and unpack my craft goodies. It's been a bit like Christmas unpacking all the stuff that has been in boxes for 10 months and there have been several things I had completely forgotten about - shhh, don't tell hubby, he already thinks I have too much craft stuff !!

Anyway, enough waffle from me, I'm here to share my card for today's new picture challenge over at Here Come the Boys , drum roll please ..... only the second card I have made this year: 

and here's the picture Inspiration for this challenge

I choose to use the vintage car and blue and green colour scheme as my inspiration. It also gave me the perfect excuse to play with my new Crafty Individuals stamp (an ebay bargain) and to get inky with distress inks. I was good and used up some scraps of paper from my bits and pieces box (yes, it moved too!!), I think most of them are Basic Grey but I'm not 100% sure. The sentiment is also a recent purchase from Stampin Up (another addiction) called 'Perfectly Penned' and I think the vintage style suits this card quite well!!

I hope you will have time to pop over to the main Here come the boys blog to see all the wonderful work from the rest of the team who have been so kind and welcomed me back - hugs to you all!!

  Looking forward to seeing your entries too!!
