I first visited Vindolanda in 2012 and saw the excavations that take place over the summer. At the time my daughter was studying Archaeology at university and we booked her a place onto the next years dig. Since then Penny has returned every year and now works for the Vindolanda Trust and I have visited Vindolanda quite a few more times!

Card making is my creative outlet and I make cards for all my friends and family. This duck brooch inspired me to put an ancient twist on some of my latest creations. It is such a beautiful piece and the symbolism of honesty and simplicity behind it is a great sentiment. I hope people will enjoy receiving these cards in the post.
