Last "live" post

Hiho, had a quickie play today, this will be my last "live" post until beginning of July. I have pre-scheduled all my DT work and a few other cards I have played around making today. This Hanglar card has some of the yummy chipboard from Make it Crafty that arrived in the post about two weeks ago and I haven't had a chance to play with yet.

Here are some challenges I followed...

So... I hope you all behave while I'm away!!! I am certainly looking forward to having a holiday... my style has changed somewhere along the line and I haven't been adding all the yummy WOC flowers I normally maybe a break away from the craft room is what I need.? Anyway...I am sure I will have lots of emails and blogs to catch up on when I finally get back!
