Our challenge this month

This month Nadine challenged us to make a bag. Mine made with that lickable ribbon i go on and on and on about ....
Tracey too cute bag

Judy's wee tiny one that I think would look great on a christmas tree

Nadines now wouldn't you like to get one of these filled with chocolate fudge for christmas mmmm I would!!

This photo does not give enough credit to this card Judy made it is all black , white and grey and very elegant . I think it would be a great 21st card.

This month our challenge was set by Nadine to make a bag.

More of Judy,s cards.

I am sorry Judy I tried to turn the photos around but they just would not stay put!!!

Beautiful or what.

My Team Are so talented!!




My team of Downline and I meet once a month for chat , tips and tecniques and make n takes . This time Judy was in charge , She really enjoys Michelle Zindorf style .So we all had a go .It is not my natural style however I really like the outcome so much so I made judy come back again and help me make a really cool one to send to my friends in the states for christmas ( i will put it here after i have posted them so as not to spoil the surprise) .
