thought i'd  share  a Fantastic lady's web site with you all
The Barnes Boys
Lorraine is a lovely lady who not only  looks after  2 sons  with CF but  tirelessly  fund raises  for the CF trust.
All my spare cards  now go to Lorraine to sell to raise money . its a small way of helping. such a FANTASTIC cause.

so i've  now  stepped away from the  ttable  till i can think of  something differant  to do or i will have a box full of this type of cards

so  i've  gone  Humphrey  mad  just love  this  little  elephant and i'm also loving this  type of card . its  such an easy fold and can be used on a card  or made bigger and used as a photo frame
