Epecially for you!!!!!

Yes I know, I can't believe it either!!
I'm back for a while, fed up with the decorating so having a few weeks off! YIPPEE!
Also had my brother and his wife with 3 children under 7 so been quite busy one way and another.
Just a very simple card to share with you this evening a bit of hessian which I begged of my my friend Fleur of a
"passion for craft" (check her out if you haven't already) some October afternoon papers and a cuttlebug quilled flower which are so easy to do, I just love making them. I know they are a little pricey, but you can make big flowers small flowers even tiny teeny flowers, I have another project on the go with lots of flowers and will show you later next week.
I know you wont hold your breath!!
If you click on the picture below it will give you more information on the product, from good ole sir stampalot!

Hi Chris

You are sounding a little hyper-active at the moment and a little crafty break will do you good.

Lovely card, great papers and your flower looks gorgeous.

Hope you are OK.

By the way, the house next door is up for sale .. .. .. and I would be happy to share my goodies and cheese scones with you anytime!! Do you want me to request details of the house from the estate agent LOL!!
