I love making my own cards, but dabble in cake making & crochet too. I enjoy going to Alexander Palace twice a year with my mum.

I completed my card, BUT, I was dissapointed with it!!!  I could have embossed each piece of card & there are small smears of glue showing!!  Still, thought i'd upload it & continue to enter it in the challenge.

IMAGE : swap from a fellow blogger.

PAPER & CARD : old stash

RIBBON : purchased off of QVC, yonks ago - it came with loads of assorted types of ribbons.
(I coloured this ribbon with a promarker).


PROMARKERS : used to colour image.

SENTIMENT : bought at Alexander Palace and I have coloured it with a promarker.

RECYCLED ELEMENT : Red droplets on wire.
This came off a Christmas card that Pat (Patricia), a fellow blogger sent me.
(I like to keep the cards & this was the easiest part to dismantle).
