pink and lime card are core dination.
brads, spacers and pearls from Jills.
sentiment and swirls WOJ.
I have decorated the inside .


Good afternoon everyone
Well it's nice to be back
I had nearly forgot how to do
Since we came back from holiday I have struggled to get back to making cards,.
The weather has been good and there seems to have been lots of other things to do.
We didn't really make up our minds where we were going until the day before we went away,
we both love the North Yorkshire moors so that is where we went.
It was lovely here are a couple of photos I took while up there.
I hope to be getting back to normal this fingers crossed.
Have your all having a lovely weekend.
