HB 2 U


Reporting from a super sunny, super hot, Sheffield today! Not very often I can say that but today it's true! In fact, what am I doing indoors? I should be making the most of this LOL!

But before I dash outside to dine Alfresco Styleee, I'm here to share a card with you of course:

<span class=

Truth be told, I'm not entirely 100% sure about this one...I kinda want to make it again but I doubt I'll find the time right now!

This card was created for our fabulous new challenge over on our PTI blog. All you have to do is pick an element (Earth, Air, Wind or Fire) and go on a creative journey with it: it's ELEMENTary! :) I hope you can tell what element I picked. Clue: colour scheme and sparkling candles!

So c'mon and join in the fun and show me how it's really done!

Oooh and before I dash out for my dinner, be sure to check out some sneak peeks of the fabulous July/August issue of Paper Crafts. Not only am I totally honoured that my li'l card is featured there today, but you can have a chance of winning it along with some other seriously fabulous cards! (I'm tempted to enter myself; I did have a soft spot for that card...I hope it goes to a good home!)

Now my dinner is really calling me...along with a G&T *wink*

Catch ya later!
