Monochromatic Vintage - Do It With Digis DT

Good morning lovely peeps,
Today is my last day of relative peace as tomorrow hubby starts his holiday from work and is off for 18 days, yes 18! Oh lord that's 18 days of complaining every time I get my hoover out, 18 days of sport on TV, 18 days of extra mess, bless his heart lol. It's a ridiculous amount of days off, 7 is lovely I can do 7, after 10 he's really getting under my feet & on my nerves saying he's bored & that's a word I don't do & have never understood there is always far too much to do to get bored, but 18 days for goodness sake he'll be getting on his own nerves by then lol. Please keep your fingers crossed for lovely weather for me, I mean for him so he can jump on his beloved Harley & go off on his long rides which for some strange reason he loves doing & I can hoover to my hearts content lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& this fortnight our challenge is one of my favourites it's

Our lovely Lynne is sponsoring this challenge with a fabulous prize, shame I can't enter & try & win it lol. As always my teamies have some beautiful creations to inspire you, pop over & take a peek.

Now don't run off when you see the piccy, you are on the right blog lol, I have made a second attempt at vintage as I've made this card for my friend Ali's birthday & she loves vintage
Ingredients -
Image - downloaded from a free vintage image blog (sorry I can't remember which one)
Papers - Melissa Francis & Raspberry Road
Flowers - Prima, Kort & Godt & Wild Orchid
Lace - ebay
Charm - Bunny Zoes
Pin & pearls - stash
Tools - Woodware mini butterfly punch, Magnolia Doo Hickey butterfly, MS PATP

The picture below I've added especially for our lovely Dawn as she was concerned about my lack of "trademark sparkle" in the DT blog lol. Blogger wouldn't let me back in there to say "click the piccy Dawn" and this one shows the sparkle quite well so Dawn pop your specs on & click the pic lol.

The fancy corner is from ecrafts and I've again covered it with picket fence crackle paint as I don't like the gold one's I bought so they have all been painted to disguise that garish gold colour rather than throw them away

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Stampavie & More - butterflies, Hooked On Crafts - anything goes, Simon Says Stamp & Show - metal, Everybody Art - anything goes, Deep Ocean - flowers, Whoopsi Daisy - pile on the flowers, Pile It On - metal, Make It Monday - anything goes, Totally Papercrafts - punches & dies, Sweet Stampin - things with wings, CES - sparkly flowers, Craft Your Days Away - monochrome, Simply Create - wings, Sketch Saturday - fab sketch, Crafts 4 Eternity - embellies beginning with R, Cutie Stampers - flowers

A big thank you to the lovely Jo for letting me know she is having exactly the same blogger problem, it's always good to know you aren't alone as it means it's definitely not my laptop or internet connection, & thanks so much for the suggestions for overcoming it, so far nothing is working but I'll keep trying.
Thanks for stopping by
