Don't you find that life is kind of weird sometimes? I stamped the image for the card below, on Monday morning and took it to my "colouring room" (which, btw, sounds far grander than it actually is - it's aka my dining room!!!!), realised it was lunch time so got no further. Post arrived whilst I was "at lunch" and, guess what? A card arrived - nothing unusual in that, I hear you cry. And you would be right .... but for the fact that the EXACT same image was on the envelope!!! SPOOKY or what? Needless to say, I returned to my colouring station and completed the card you see below ..

This is a great vintage image Kathy and I wonder what odds you would get on having someone send you the same image at the same time. Have a good weekend. x
