Well, it's been ages since I posted (again!) - sorry, spend so much time blog hopping that I don't get time to update my own - haven't been making as many cards recently either.

I did find time to go to the Craft Fair at Westpoint last weekend & managed to spend all of my birthday money (& then some!). It was a really good day out, but my feet were soo tired at the end of it & I was suffering from severe caffeine withdrawals, it was several days before I played with any of my goodies. I managed to increase my Magnolia collection by 6, and although I promised myself no more christmas stuff I could not resist a Penny Black clear christmas critter set.

Anyway, this week a friend of hubbys was moving and had a clear out, and gave me a whole load of crafting stuff - I've never met this girl & thought this was really sweet, so I made her this card to say thank you (& at the same time got to play with one of my new magnolia stamps and one of my new cuttlebug embossing folders).

Hope you like - no promises on when I will next find time in my hectic schedule to post.

Hi Rachel,
I love what you've done with the embossing on this card, it's fab!
You asked about the metal flowers on my card, but unfortunately I don't know where they're from sorry, I was sent them by a fellow blogger!
Take care, Tara xxx
