Ivory and brown

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well or getting there...hugs.

I am very happy to report that my car is now M.O.Td and taxed for another year,  and had it's Winter check so that's the biggest item out of the way :o)

I went to the Doc yesterday and he confirmed what I already thought, I have arthritis in my left hand, but it's early days yet so the pain is bearable, certainly not as bad as the shoulder and back pains. HeyHo, that's the price of getting old LOL! Isn't it strange that until I was 70, I hardly ever needed to visit the Doctor's, but now everyting is going to pot!!!!! Thank goodness for cardmaking :o)

Anyhow, enough of my rambling, I know there are lots of peeps out there far worse off than me so I'd better stop grumbling!

Onto my card for today!

 I do love sepia whether it's old photographs or cards, and although this is Memento Cocoa, it is near enough!
Base card is ivory linencard from Papermill Direct, folded and cut to 7x5.
I stamped Woodware grasses onto it twice, then the Stampendous agapanthus cluster onto a small scrap of the same card. I inked the edge of the panel and attached it with foam pads to lift it. 
Sentiment is an old stamp from Stamps and Smiles and Bob's yer Uncle, the card is finished. Didn't take very long to make :o)

Another fabulous card Jackie... and yes the colour you've used does resemble sepia - so gives it that vintage feel.

And you're right about the docs... only my visits have started in the last few years! I'm a bit fed up of having 'to go home and live with it'... mind you, that's so much better than the alternative!! hehe!

Love the concept you followed...turned out beautiful. Again, something I haven't done in quite a while. I like following you because you are using different medians and different design ideas everyday which helps keep me on my toes. As far as your sorry and I imagine the cold weather settling in probably doesn't help. We were 25 degrees this morning and just two days ago it was 75 and I was sitting on the porch enjoying the view of my flowers.
