An old farm card...

Hi Blogging Beauties,

Saturday night we went to my uncle's 50th.  It was a lovely party.  So good to catch up with family.  Keith is a farmer and loves old things so we bought him an old iron from a second-hand shop as his present. The iron wasnt the same as this (this is one of google images) but it kind of gives you an idea of what I am talking about.  It was a rectangular shape and was so heavy I couldnt lift it.

This was the card I made to go with the present.
I printed off an image from Google of an Australian Farm and Home Magazine from back in 1958.  The paper behind that is a map I printed off of New South Wales in colonial settlement times, got that from google too.  (But most of this got covered up.)  I added some coloured chip-board and some rafia and some hat pins to embellish it a little and fill in that big space.  Here is a close-up.

I would like to enter in the Crazy Amigo Challenge - Animals

Here is a picture of me nursing Tommy.  He is such a baby when he wants to be.  He loves to sleep in my arms or on my lap.  I dont get a lot done though when he does this.

Here is a close-up of his closed eyes...

 I have been busy today and busy again tomorrow.
How have you been going??
Thanks for stopping by.
