Butterfly pocket card......

l Have left the sentiment off this card so l have multi options....the pocket inside the card is deep enough to take an ATC or gift voucher....very quick card to make.. Thank you for taking a look X

Another wonderful Mag and RAK

CraftyCharl over on the CB forum sent me this mag the other day..what a lovely,kind lady..l am so grateful,its difficult to get crafting mags over here...and taking out subscriptions is so expensive, especially when there are so many magazines to choose from....its so nice reading all the articles...Charl also sent me all the other bits in the pic too....Thank you so much Charl !

living in the sun !..or, maybe not ....LOL

Hello all, Yet another rainy,miserable day,and damn chilly too.l have put all the heating back on!..its been like this since Saturday...my poor friends arrived on Saturday too and they have not seen the sun.The problem is she loves to craft,so she could come here to mine and craft away all day..BUT, being as she is here with her hubby...its a bit difficult for her to dump him lol! Sara has been in LA for spring break...they had a wonderful time in Long Beach..some friends have a boat and they all went sailing then went to their house for a BBQ in the evening..she was going to "six flags" on Sunday..she is certainly living the dream !Amanda is now finishing off exams...so far so good !l was worried as l took her out of school for 2 weeks to go to the states in January,but it didn´t do her studies any harm,thank god !..Marcos is thinking of changing his job,he earns a lot of money,but is not happy..so quite a bit going on at home at the moment... Hope you are having a lovely day..x
