Hello there my lovelies x
Hope your bank holiday Monday was a relaxing one. 

Well, I have some news to share .... I won tickets for ALLY PALLY in Sept. I am pleased as punch. Thanks ever so much Sue (from particraft).

Now my card today (well kind of a card) I only decorated what you can see, has taken for ever to make!! Gawd knows why! I used a lot of my new Spellbinders, but did have some difficulty with the intricut designs. I was using my black card, admittedly not extra thick, but I had trouble every time in getting a proper cut. Just a bit frustrating when you have a design in your mind! 

Still ... finally finished .... 

              Sorry about the Picture quality. It was taken after midnight!
