Vintage for the men in our lives ...

Hi Everyone

It's always difficult to do cards for men and I know many of us struggle, but today I've used a combination of Newsprint DP, the lovely Broadsheet Alphabet and the En Francais background stamp which helps give this card a lovely vintage feel. My dear father-in-law is going through a difficult time at the moment and is 93 years old on Monday ... so I hope he's not offended by being given a "vintage" card!

If you like the vintage look, have a look at the vintage SUITE on pp.64-65 of the current Stampin' Up! catalogue. You could combine the Notably Ornate stamp set (£22.95), Distressing Essentials kit (£14.95) and Newsprint DP (£8.75) for a total of £46.65 which means you qualify for a FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp set of your choice (the lovely Bliss stamp set would work very well with the vintage look!)

Hurry and take advantage of the Sale-a-Bration offer as you only have 10 days left to place your order (offer finishes 28th Feb) and then these FREE stamp sets are gone forever!

Bye 'till later!
