MY CARD RECIPE

This card has not been made with the greatest of E,s I didn't think it would ever be ready for this morning had a late one last night!

Home is called love shack by whipper Snapper, so I shall give this post another title at a future date, for those of you that havent visited before I give my post a song title.

Dog sat up is Magnolia (shrunk)all flowers (shrunk) and trees are magnolia fence is magnolia (shrunk) flourish is fancy pants, May all your wishes come true is Hero Arts, papers and card are a right old mixture, old being the word in some cases. Button is a Martha Stewart punch to which I have looped cord to form a flower.most of these things are available from Sir Stamaplot .

Hope you Like.
love Chris xx
