You are never to old to have fun.

'Make us Laugh',  is the new theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
This is a card made for a friend who has as off beat outlook towards getting older.
I have my three old friends sitting remembering the old days.  This stamp I have had a while and do not remember who its by, age gets to us all.
So here we have Alice and Minnie who think they are to old to have fun.
While Tilly has the evidence stashed in her handbag, which  proves  the many adventures  the three friends have been getting up to recently  and it has  involved  more that a glass or two of gin and tonic.
I wonder whats in that handbag, do you?
The images are layered up on patterned paper etc. One piece was embossed  then rubbed over with an old Vintage photo ink pad to show up the textures. All the other shading was this shade.
I used water colours on the main image.

I hope you will join the fun at FSC this time. We have our regular sponsor Flonzcraft.
You will find all the details here. Remember we like to see a stamped image as the main focus of your entry.

Thank you for stopping by the comments you leave are always appreciated.
