Shabby Beer Mat

The Lovely Crafty Helen sent me some Beer Mats, and I made a card with them yesterday, I had that much fun I decided to make another one 😉

My good friend Deb and I were blethering on skype yesterday and she sent me some lovely vintage images which I’d been dying to use too.. and they too feature on the card I made this afternoon.

I also featured one of the beautiful flower centres that my friend Karen made and sent over to me 🙂 you should check her out on Youtube Billyfloss1968 she also sells them in her Etsy store 🙂
