Red White Blue

Evening folks. This card was started off at an afternoon craft session at my friend Helen's house. Spent most of the time blethering, drinking coffee and eating yummy cakes (thanks Aud) and swapping tips and the card wasn't much further on by the end of the afternoon. Shattered by the time we came away, thankfully no dinner to cook tonight. A quick bite and settled down to get this card finished too enter the And it has already been spoken for, that was quick. My son wants it for his girlfriends mum's 50th birthday

My granddaughter Naomi, dressed up as a pirate if you hadn't already guessed! A proper little auction doll she is, keeps her Nan on her toes, on her knees more like it!
