Flower soft .....

Yuk yuk i said i don't like the stuff infact 2 of my ladies said the same as we all stuffed our pots in the Age concern class cupboard.
Ok so i might have been a bit hasty...i have found that if you print out from joanna sheen's Pamela west CD Flower soft is quite fabby.

well i finally received my amazon code so off i went and ordered some CC pearl A3 card was happy it only cost me 99p once i'd entered my code yippeeee.
postie knocked the door today. and handed me a large white jiffee bag , i was a bit shocked as the corner was squashed a bit.... once i opened it it became clear the corner was all mashed good to make a nice card with or a box for that matter..... i seen on the bag the customer service number so though i'd let them know the packaging was to thin, WOW that's all i can say THANK YOU Crafters Companion they are replacing the card .... and told me to use this lot for matting and layering

notelet set

well once again a box has taken over the kitchen table
I've taken the project from Cardmaking and papercraft mag issue 95 , Iwas worried to start as the measurements was in mm not cm or inches lol. I used MCS to print the card ,used peel offs to hide mistakes ( theres always one lol) now all i need to do is make the cards etc for inside.
