Thanks to You

Hello there - today I would like to share with you my DT post for The Stamp Spot.  Even though I am on the road I managed to make a few things before I left.
I have gone a little girly with this card - in fact the image is girly (I vary rarely do girly girl images but for this and future posts I have!) and I enjoyed using this image from Some ODD girl 'thank you Mae'
She is a dream to to colour!

I also decorated a picture frame to be given with this card as a thankyou gift ...
I just rolled some MFT mini rolled roses and tied a bow and secured to the glass on the frame.  The rubons were applied to the white card beneath the glass.  A quick and easy gift to make.

Sending sweet wishes

Hello there - it has been over a week since I last posted ... I was in NZ visiting my new nephew who I have to say is absolutely adorable (not that I am bias!)
So glad to be back in the craft room ... but not for long as we are hoping to leave mid next week for a 3 month cycle stint over to South Australia!
Anyway I did have a go at making a circular step card and I have to say it was a definite learning curve for me and I loved how it turned out.
I would like to enter it in for the following challenges - Paper Take Weekly - something that makes you go awwwww!, Party Time Tuesday - multifold cards; Creative Card Crew - trees and Kaboodle Doodles - flowers.
