Hi everyone!

My name is Alex and I'm posting this on behalf of my Mam (or Fiona as you know her) as she is busy with work and wouldn't be able to post it in time.

So here is another one of her amazing cards (I wish I was as creative as her...my lack of creativity is shown in the design of the blog and it's background)

My Mam made this for Stamp Insanity's SISC71~Your FAVORITE SISC!

She chose the Favourite Colour challenge (three guesses what her favourite colour is...)

I think that's it....Oh! except, this post will probably be edited by my Mam once she gets in from work so you won't have to put up with me for long lol.

OK, thanks all!  Nice to meet you. See ya around.


Thanks Alex :) and nope, I'm not going to change a single word, all I'm going to do is say Thank You to all those who left kind and encouraging comments on my previous post and add the usual details.

The image is one of the new Victorian Steampunk releases from Make it Crafty
The backing paper is from the Papermania Capsule Collection, Heather Paper Collection by Tina Higgins.  The flowers and ribbon are from my stash.
