I'm Taking a Short Break .....

Hi Everyone.

I just wanted to let you know I'll be away for the next couple of weeks so won't be posting for a while.

I used the front of an old shop bought card for the background of this quickie and punched the flowers from it too.

I will pop in to see what you're up to  when I get the chance during my break and look forward to being back with you again soon.

Happy Crafting!


Love Barb xx
