Gothic Arches - History

The challenge this week at GOTHIC ARCHES is "HISTORY", I began to ponder what has impacted life and put into fast forward. Recently the computer as had a major impact on ourlives; just over 100 years ago the motor car was invented.

HORSELESS CARRIAGES "Motor cars have had a tremendous effect on the way of life. Travel is no longer limited. The work is a smaller place."

Vintage Valentines

HAPPY VALENTINES
One of my favorite things to do besides stamping & scrapping is HUNTING! Now don't get the wrong impression I don't hunt for game... I am always on the look out for anything vintage that I might be able to use in my projects. Here are a few of the Valentines I picked up last weekend!!!!
