Have not made any cards today been doing that house work thingy, which i hate.
My ribbons have come from crafty ribbons for their second challenge, oh they are gorgeous lovely brown, pink and aqua colours so I'll get started on them tomorrow, will upload them later tomorrow.
Well enjoy the rest of the weekend, I'm off for a lovely hot bubble bath mmmmmmmmmmm hugs carol
