Hi to all,Have been having a very strange day....this morning I thought I'd added a new post and a couple of cards for you to look at....can't imagine what's happened to it all...I had wittered on about this and that(as you do)and asked what you thought of my latest cards....lol....obviously I have'nt pressed something or other....so I'll start again if I may...lol....but I will keep it short(don't want to bore you to death...not in my first week anyway)made the card with the image and flowers on for a friend,the image was sent to me by aunty sue,amongst lots of goodies,and I just had to make a card from it last night,still have'nt put the sentiment on yet though,but I hope you like it,the other card was a last minute one for a friend last night,and to be honest it has'nt scanned to well,not much detail at all,but maybe you'll like it anyway.Must go and catch up with some of the blogs now,am getting very carried away with it all,thanks so much for dropping in,hope to see you soon,hugs Janette.x

Good morning and Happy Easter. This little card is my effort for the 'Tilda' challenge on do-crafts forum this week, we were asked to do Strawberry's and cream,or pink and cream,as long as it had ribbon,a flower and some green on it,I think I did it.

The background paper is Laura Ashley,as is the ribbon and large brad,the gingham from stash and the strawberrys also stash,the flower was just a punch,which I happen to love so much at the moment,hope you like it and thanks for dropping by and having a smooch around,I know it's early days yet,not much to see,but we all had to start somewhere....Have a Fab time,hugs Janette.xx
