At the North West edge are the remains of the Fountain Square and a sanctuary dedicated to the gods and heroes of Kamiros
The ruins of the houses are arranged on the slopes of the hill, either side of the "high Street"
I wanted to make a GD card for Nicecrane for today's card. All this antiquity inspired me to made a vintage card.
I used one of the pre coloured Vintage Cute Babies Cards set. Although these are not strictly Christmas images I wanted to get some more of my Christmas card stash made and I thought these were perfect. They are available to buy here Also is you would like to see some more lovely DT cards do pop over to the Nicecrane Blog here there is a very cute Freebie over there at the moment!
And a close of of that gorgeous Vintage image.
I made some handmade paper using Distress Ink on Kraft paper which I embossed with a snowflake pattern, this is just visible under the focal image. I also used some fun holly paper from my stash. The holly and Santa's sleigh die cuts are Cheery Lynn. I cut the sleigh using gold mirror card which is soo difficult to photograph. I added a snowflake charm from my jewellery stash and some red pearls as holly berries. The ribbon is from last year.

We are now officially in autumn but there still seems to be some lovely sunshine about. I even managed to cut the lawn when I got home this afternoon. Downton Abbey is back on our screens too ;0) This morning I returned to my silversmithing class and we have some interesting projects lined up to make. The first one is to make a metal orchid out of copper and I have been sawing out the pieces today. Enjoy your week and Keep Crafting. Thanks as always for all your kind visits and a really warm welcome to my newest followers.
Someone else has been enjoying the sunshine, I spotted my sweet Billy flat out late this afternoon high up on our kitchen roof....bless
Bye for now,
