What's on your TV!

hi all

Click HERE to enter my 'happy candy' draw

So sorry I'm a bit late with my post today - I've had a busy time these last couple of days that as kept me away from my blog (and most other things!)  My regular visitors will know that my youngest son Tom has Cerebral Palsy which causes him to have severe physical disabilities - but he's also very bright and is now in the second year of his masters degree.  I regularly support him in his studies by acting as a reader and scribe.  He's been working on his dissertation proposal this week so it's been a busy old week work-wise - and not over yet! 

None the less I've eventually escaped
to share my card for this weeks challenge at

Moving Along With The Times

Our theme is 

Square Eyes
(your favourite TV programme)

I have to say I'm a bit selective with my TV viewing
but I do like a good old murder mystery!

I like programmes like Broadchurch and Silent Witness
but also the good old Agatha Christie one like 
Miss Marple and Poirot

I think this card is more Miss Marple than Silent Witness!!

It reminded me of when first started work and used to travel there on the bus - I used to read Agatha Christie books to pass the time - I must have read dozens of them and they were really good!
I haven't read an Agatha Christie book for years now - happy days!!

I made this card with another of those fab Sheena Douglas stamp sets - they're such good quality and stamp beautifully every time.  I think this card is more masculine than feminine - but could be used for either as it has a definite vintage look - its a large 8 inch card  and looks quite good IRL.
I did think abourt adding some flowers but decided to leave it as it was to keep it simple!

This is what i did..

Stamp - Mystery Author from Sheena Douglas a little bit sketchy range
Sentiments - top of card Sheena Douglas 'I say' from a little bit sketchy range
                     bottom of card - produced in word
Ribbon - Crafty ribbons
Lace - Creative expressions
Papers - LOTV father knows best
Charm - from my stash
Pins - from my stash
Dies - Flag tail MFT
Perfect pearls and TH distress inks Tea dye, vintage linen

We'd love to see you at MAWTT to show us your favourite TV programme

Sounds like you've had a busy week! Your vintage card is gorgeous! Love the image and the gorgeous bike charm! I think you made a good move to not add the flowers as it's perfect the way it is and an ideal masculine card, which I really struggle with!

Sounds like a busy week Judith. Love your card...great as it is for a male or the addition of some flowers would make a lovely card for a female. Carol x

Defo more Miss Marple than Silent Witness Judith, don't think Miss Marple would have needed a forensic pathologist at her side, but she probably did clack away on a bulky typewriter! Love the theme you've all followed this week and your card, like the others is just perfect. Hope you've got Tom's bits and bobs up to date and I bet you are so glad you live in the computer age! Mind you, that old trusty rusty would probably have coped better with the tea than your Lappy did, lol! Have a great weekend Judith, Jx
