Sorry that I am not in blogland very much at the moment ... my dad is still in hospital and very ill ... so I've not had much time for crafting and it took me about 3 weeks to make this card.. I've just been adding bits here and there when I get the time... my motivation being to make an extra special Christmas Card for my mum this year as she has been through so much... I think she will like this as she loves the vintage photos.
I will try to catch up with you all soon. 
Take care
Love and hugs
