Hello Amazing Bloggers!  

I've just had an hour visiting and commenting on blogs so now I thought I'd do my posting. 

I'm sure that many of you are aware, I don't have just one particular style!  I do like to use different products, mediums and a variety of designs!  I enjoy using different techniques and enjoy the challenge this brings me!  

It's a lovely day here in South Wales.  It was horrendous yesterday with rain and wind and it really felt as if Autumn was on its way!  But today its back to Summer again! 

Anyway, enough of my ramblings you want to see the card don't you:- 

I made this card about 2 1/2 years ago for my Mum for her birthday!  

I coloured Tilda using Promarkers.  I cannot tell you what colours I used so please forgive me for that!  The paper I used to cover the Easel shaped card were Papermania Elegance.  My Mum adored this card!
