Spring is in the air

Good Evening my lovlies.


I have decided to give ALL the cards I have made so far to the Royal Marsden in Sutton. This is where my Dad went.
I already had some with boxes, others with envelopes & plastic sleeves & some that I needed to make boxes for. I quite like the presentation of a card in a box. 
So, that's what I have been up to. I have 94 cards to donate, all now in a big Ikea bag ready to be delivered by me. Shall probably go on Friday because I am back to work next week !!! (sad face).


So, now I am starting a fresh with my cards.


I have made this card for my friend Tina. It's her birthday on Friday.


Here is my card ................ Sorry about the poor picture quality. It's come out rather dull ! My camera has its moments ! maybe it's because it's evening.
