Hi girls, well it's Monday again, my the weeks are flying past, only a few more weeks till we are off on holidays, not going far, a week in Sunny Glasgow, then a week in Sunny Inverness, but at least it's away from home, yippee, i will be taking a batch of images and my markers with me, incase I get some time, as we are in a caravan site in Inverness and it might rain, i am hoping it won't but you never can be sure.

Anyways I'll be back later when boys are in bed with yesterdays card that I tried to post but just couldn't get it to load, and I've also managed a card today also, so heres hoping all goes smoothly when i try later.

Good evening ladies, hope you are all well. I managed to bundle the boys into bed this evening early so that I could take part in the scrap on line over at Paper Craft Planet, Karen had left the instructions earlier today so we could have all the bits cut to size ready to go and, then we all started off and made the same card but in our own colours and ideas, you should pop over to the challenge blog she has set up tomorrow to see what we came up with and theres also the chance for you to join in the fun,

Tonight we made a gate fold card with a wrap.

Firstly the closed card with the wrap on.

Next is the card opened out with the wrap laying next to it.
