Beautiful Botanics


I love the Craftwork Cards Christmas Post pack so much that I decided I must buy the Botanics pack and was so pleased to find it at the Thetford show last Sunday. The quality of these products is brilliant and the designs are fabulous.



I made 2 shaped cards, also from Craftwork Cards. Everthing on the cards is from the pack except the pearls, ink for the edges and the die cut birds. I have been wanting a flying bird die for ages. I love my Memory Box one but the birds are tiny and sometimes I want bigger birds. The bigger bird dies I have aren't flying and you know how it is when you really want something. I hadn't been able to find any online but at the show I was browsing the All Occasion stand and found just what I wanted, 4 small flying birds.

Just popping in with a quick hello as still computer-less so having to beg and borrow a few moments here and there, fingers crossed everything will be back to normal next week.
