Good day to you all out there in blogland

Chipboard-mannequins never fail to make me smile - I do sooooooo loVe them

  2. Hi Karen

    Love the Tunnel cards - as you say such depth to them. I particularly like the rose - would love to be able to make those. Still practicing on the flowers.

    It's a shame that the classes are so far away as I wish I could attend.

    However, the tutorials you post are really useful.

    Many thanks for your lovely designs.
