More From The Vintage Stash!!!

Isn't this bird image beautiful?
I love that it is printed onto acetate and I have fixed it to the front panel of this Joy Fold card with Glossy Accents and then highlighted the berries with the same.
Paper is gcd Studios.
Now I am a bit puzzled by this paper collection Joyful Peace by gcd studios as it is identical to the Silent Night collection by Papermania. How can two companies have the same papers available. I only discovered this when I was looking for paper with a particular shade of red so I got out both collections to compare the colours. Low and behold not only were the colours identical but the patterns were too. Very odd indeedy.

Had a slight trauma today over the icing for the small traditional cake for the top of the cake stand for the wedding. I phoned a cake decorating shop to check if they had ivory ready to roll icing and yes they did but by the time we had travelled up there to buy some they had sold out which made the half hour we sat in a traffic jam more annoying than it would normally have been. I ended up buying white icing and a dye thingy to colour it. I am not over confident about it as I have never decorated this sort of cake before...never mind coloured icing. Wish me luck.

The evening has been better as DD and I had a very simple tea in front of the tv watching Law and Order SVU.
Now she has gone to pick Mr Manic up from work and I am off upstairs to pack a bag for work tomorrow and then I am going to have a long soak in the bath.

Bye for now and thanks for your visit.

  1. How odd about those papers Sheila! Love your card though. The image and the papers are lovely and the result is truly traditional.
