Giordano and Joanna Vintage Christmas


Morning peeps.  It is mixed here today very windy and sun one minute and pouring of rain the next.  I am off to the hairdressers this afternoon and it always rains just as I come out.  Lol!!!

My card today is another just because I want too.  The stamp plate I have used is another really old one  and I was proud of myself to have dug it out!!!
 I was geared up to to find an old stamp by the lovely SQUIRREL who is running a Challenge until the end of the month.  Pop over and check it out.  This is my Third and last entry for the Challenge.
