Spring Greetings


I'm really shattered today, as all i seem to have done is drive 4 year old son round the Sussex countryside today !!! - we ended up at an activity farm place and didn't get home till 5.30pm, so i'm quickly going to upload today' card and then have some well deserved chilling out time.

Today card has caused me several headaches !!! - i found a fabby circle step card on someone's blog and in theory it looked fabby and easy - in practice the paper copy ended up in the bin !!!, anyway i decided to do a twist on a gate fold card that i had seen on 1 of the several You Tube videos i watched yesterday !!! - where by the image and frame are separate from each other and i love how it has turned out - i will persevere with a step card, so watch this space.

Right onto todays Card and Challenges :

Basic Grey - where Challenge No: 39 is 'Wings' - i chose a bee and Basic Grey papers - 'Kioshi'
