is it vintage or just a rubbish photo...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and having a fabulous week so far...I'm feeling loads better today (thank goodness for that I hear you all cry), boy have I felt sorry for myself over the last few days, I just reread my posts and what a moaning minnie I was...well hopefully that is it and I'm well on the mend...Phil came in from work last night and I could see the relief on his face bless him, I'm sure he was fed up with me too lol...I'm even going out this afternoon, out to lunch with my stunningly beautiful Daughter, no doubt I will be on handbag duty in changing rooms too while she moans at how her size 8/10 shape is too fat 'groan', I think one of my legs is that size or it was at one time lol...I'm sure she will be in need of something before her and her other half head of to Amsterdam on Monday, something she couldn't possibly go away without, we all know that feeling don't we...right now onto my card for today...now I'm not sure if its vintage looking or the photo is just rubbish in this faded light we have atm (I so miss my daylight lamp, but hopefully will get a new bulb today)...well I'm going with its vintage and I'm sticking with it lol...this is the stunningly beautiful Alisa with Roses from Mo's Digital Pencil...Mo is a genius the way she can put such movement into her images isn't she...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with one of the new pads I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts (see I told you they would appear this week, this is the first second one tomorrow)...this is the stunningly beautiful Kaisercraft - Sweet Nothings 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad (sssshhhhh on sale atm too) look at those roses, gorgeous isn't it and like all Kaisercraft pads there's 4 pages of tags and borders etc at the back, I used one of the tags behind my image and finished with a satin bow...the fab sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches and I'm also entering it for the Truly Scrumptious challenge, its their last one too...right I better get my war paint on, I'm at the age I don't even put the bin out without mascara and lippy...whatever your up to today I hope you have a fabulous one
