ABC I is for .....


Good morning to you all, I am half way through my week off and enjoying it soooooo much, too much ... wish i could stay home all the time :o)
I am meeting my friend for lunch later which will be nice - she is due her baby any day though so lets hope we make it to desert (priorities, lol).

And now for some sad news. Due to other committments I have made the difficult decision to leave ABC . I have loved my time here and it was my very first DT position so it will always be special to me. There is a brand new shiny DT member called Helen so please make sure you give her a really warm welcome.

I is for ...... INSIDE




So lets see you decorating the inside of your cards. Lots of you do this already so it should be easy for you all to join in. I have started this a little while ago now and i do love the finish it gives to my cards - I could never go back to a plain white insert now. I have used this sweet PM image and kept it quite simple. I picked up the lovely ribbon at Harrogate last week knowing I had to make a christening card.



My inside is quite simple, I have carried the colours through and focussed on the lovely daisies from the papers - you can never have enough flowers can you!



A closer look at the sweet heffalump. I have also discovered chalks ..... these are fab for colouring all that white space around your image. Got several sets from The PaperMill Shop in the sale. These ones are pearlescent although you can't see the sparkle in this piccie.
Have a wonderful day whatever you are doing.

super sweet card as usual. Sometimes making those dt decisions is best for us and for others. I know that I had to back off from a few places when my plate started "breaking" and I lost focus with my family.
