Good morning all.

Gary is off to Bulgaria today, all being well he should be on a bus from Edinburgh to Manchester as we speak. They're staying in a little town east of Sofia called Elin Pelin with the orphanage being about 15 minutes drive away from their hotel. I've already got his bed stripped and the washer going!

Sharing the card I made for my sister's engagement today. Guess which wally used her craft knife when working on her heat resistant mat...yes that would be me!!!

Embossed backing is a create a card die from Die'sire. Backing paper and image are from Cuddly Buddly, I've layered the image to give dimension. Flowers from Petal Lu and bow from my stash.
