Nursery Rhymes

Well eldest arrived home from his road trip this afternoon, he wasn't away for as long as we expected but has enjoyed the experience. In four days they managed to fit in Loch Lomond, Glencoe, Eilean Donan Castle,  Loch Ness and then they climbed Ben Nevis yesterday. He's fallen in love with the Highland scenery the same as the rest of us have, and is planning another trip to the islands as soon as they can afford it.

On to cards - I put together the layout for this card in publisher last night and finished it off this afternoon.

The image and backing paper are from Joanna Sheen's Messy Rabbit CD and the tickets were done in publisher. Card is finished with some pearls and stickles.
Tip - use a graphics package to create your card layouts using digital images and backing papers. Saves on ink, paper and postage.

CD Sunday - nursery rhymes
Cards for Men - anything goes (well more little boy!)
Sparkle Creations - primary colours
Lollipop Crafts - masculine
