BUTTERFLIES & PIGTAILS...............

Morning all.........!

Well I have a couple of day's off this week...not back till Thursday so plenty of crafty time for me...and the weather looks good...so hopefully I can play in the garden too..!

Hiya Vicky, I've been having a break from blogging for a couple of weeks, and today I've caught up with viewing all your lovely cards since I last popped in....wow, what a gorgeous collection. I love how you use those Pink Petticoat papers, so pretty in your hands, after all the fussy papers I tend to go for they are a breath of fresh air. Very well done with your Top 3 card, nice to hear that you like making boy cards as so many of us struggle with them. Keep up the fine work! CoB
