I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

I do hope everyone is feeling well, and for those out of sorts here's hoping you will soon be feeling better.

Today I have a Vintage Seaside Card I made for the Allsorts Challenge.

This is a 5"x7" size card.
I started by Ink Dusting white card with Memento Peanut Brittle Ink.
Then I randomly stamped Sea Shells, and a Star Fish with the same ink for my background. 
The image is from Joanna Sheen's CD Victorian Birthdays.
I added some cream cotton lace around the layered image.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Makes me want to go for a day to White Rock (my closest Seaside town) and spend the day having a picnic and collecting sea shells.
Wonderful card!
