You’re So Special

Did you miss me?  I’ve just returned from a whirlwind trip to Victoria for my BIL’s 40th birthday.  Bonfires, Bands and Great Food…  We had the most fabulous time!  I thought would  quickly post this card before I head off to work this arvo.  I must say I am glad to be back home to ‘our Winter’ of 20 degree days with blue sunny skys, I don’t do cold very well anymore.   Anyway…  So this is me playing with doilies, slightly challenging due to my phobia of all things vintage.  But I found these fab Kaisercraft crochet doilies…   they remind me of my grandmother’s dresser and now here they are on my card.  This is another card that I was fortunate enough to have published in the recent Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine, that I wanted to share you.  I hope you like it.
