Thanks for taking time to look.

Magnolia down under challenge.

This is my very 1st entry in a blog challenge... 'flutter by butterfly'. I hope i get the link right and that you experienced challenge bloggers like it... a little at least. xxx

This and the 2 atcs below are themed 'baby love', this one i still have as its my favourite of the 3, the other 2 have been swapped on the sheenie forum so i hope whoever got them liked them.

Nanny was 90 in february, i gave her this card and the one below the girls helped make and gave her... it had to have 2 little girls on... my girls think everything comes in 2's.

This was made for someone very special to me.... 'scrapz' blog challenged you to make a valentine card with no red or pink, i came up with this, but its a birthday card.

This and the 2 photos below are of a card made for a swap, the lass chose as a theme 'animals' ... was worried when i sent it incase she want big impressive 'wild animals'..lions, tigers etc, but she seemed really pleased with this as she is a keen photograher of our countryside... i got something right for a change.

This atc i made with my son in mind... i'm always saying it to him... he rides a 1200cc bike ...scares me to death half the time.

This image is just about my favourite...ever... card was sent for birthday card swap on the joanna sheen forum. I love pressed flowers... strange for someone like me!!!
