Your New Home

Afternoon people - well my Son and Daughter are back home safe from their holiday in Majorca and Megs will be back home with me tomorrow afternoon, she said she can't wait to see me - I have missed her lots.  They have both had a fabulous time and the weather has been lovely.

I think Mr Mojo has wandered off today as I am not entirely happy with this card - either that or I put it down to being quite tired today.  So do let me have your honest opinion of what you think!

  10. Hi ya!

    I think this is a super card, the image is gorgeous and your colouring is perfect. I think youve balanced it really well but I get times too when I keep looking and looking at what Ive made and just cant put my finger on it! It drives me batty (ok, even more batty!).

    Maybe go through a spell of layering your mats and see if that adds anything or not?!
