Playing the flute


So yesterday I decided to have a play around with my blog settings.  It has been a few years since I changed the background and my previous background was from Shabby Blogs website. Every time I go into my blog on the laptop my antivirus tells me their certificate has run out and asks if I want to continue, There doesn't seem to have been anything posted on their website for a few years so I decided to remove the background and use a simple one from Blogger instead. It took me a while to work out how to do this but I am very happy with the result. I also put all my magazine logos onto a separate page and then played around with some of the colours of links etc.  It was good to remind myself how to do it all.

The new Crafts Beautiful magazine was published yesterday and I was delighted to make this pretty Mother's Day card for them. The image is from LOTV and is coloured with Copics. The papers are First Edition sweet nothings and I used Joy butterfly and flower dies.
