My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

28 July 2013

Hanging Heart Wreath

Good evening, hope you've had a lovely weekend?

My lovely hubby decided we should upgrade our phones at the weekend, so I am now a happy owner of an i-phone 5 and I absolutely love it!  Just waiting for my current telephone number to transfer over from my old provider - that should be done and dusted by Tuesday!

So I had a little play in the craft room yesterday.  I recently bought some "make a wreath kits" from Craftwork Cards in the sale and had great fun putting them together as you can do what you like with the flowers to get different effects.

Here is one of them:
