 I made this card for a swap. We needed to make a card with a different fold. This card is a Tri-fold (don’t know why as there’s only 2 folds :)) As we’re heading into February which has Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d make a card along the theme of Valentine. However, I’ve made it as a ‘friend’ card. Above is the view of the card closed. This view is of the card when it’s open. You can see there… Read more »

I received this award from my friend Wendy P. Wendy gets around a lot. Wendy was born in New Zealand, then moved to Queensland, back to New Zealand where she thought she was settled. Then there was a move to Victoria (so her DH could get work) and now they’ve moved to Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory.   The rules for this Award were to tell you 10 things you’d probably not know about myself and to pass it… Read more »

So guess who slept in and didn’t get to the… Read more »
