Two gorgeous cards, I love the image on the first, and the delicate strip if lace, and I love the sweet little atc, the inks are amazing!!
Yes i popped to the show last week around 11 ish, and stayed for about ann hour, I had to make it quick as I was up to my eyes in other stuff and hubby wasn't too keen on me going! So I made it a whistle stop tour, and spent about 25 quid, not too much I was very well behaved lol!! Are u local to Newbury? xx
