CD Sunday - 'Any Old Iron' - chosen by Jocelyn

Good Morning.  I hope you are all well and enjoying Mothering Sunday.

For Jocelyn's theme I decided to take the theme literally and chose a Trinitage from La Pashe showing a Rag and Bone man with his horse and cart to represent the 'Any Old Iron' song which I remember hearing when I was very very young.

I have added a die cut bicycle to go with his very crumpled one and a die cut Happy Birthday banner in blue. A very simple card but I think effective.  I particularly like the brick wall background.
I visited You tube and found this.
I had never heard of Harry Champion and it does sound a very old recording.

I hope you will visit and leave a word or two.


  1. Great idea to link the challenge to the Any Old Iron song Carol, smashing image

  2. The Rag and Bone man, there's a blast from the past Carol. Your card is just perfect.

  3. A real blast from the past, we could do with them now, at least tgere was never any fly tipping when we had them
    Brilliant card love the image and your design

  4. WE still have a rag and bone man but he drives a lorry! A great 'old fashioned' scene which I love.

  5. Goodness, that scene could be the northern town I was brought up in - the brick buildings, the factory chimneys and even the rag and bone man with his horse, he was still coming round in the late 1950s and shouting "Rag BOOONE! Rag BOOONE!" as he went. Lovely card, thanks for the happy memories

  6. A fabulous card Carol, such a super image.
