Hello Everyone on this cold Saturday morning!!  Being Saturday, that could only mean one thing, Yes!!!!!.........Sheena is on C&C in 24hrs time, yippee.....cannot to make the time go faster you could go around the DT's blogs and check out what they have made with Sheena's new stamp sets! and you could start here, on my blog! I stamped and embossed the snowdrops and i knew that everyone else would be leaving them white, but i thought i would do them whatever colour i wanted, that's the art of being a designer!!! LOL ........oh ok, you caught me out, i was so wrapped up in what i was doing, i finished the card and looked at it again to take my pics and realised that i had stamped the snowdrops and NOT the crocuses......"Oh No.....they are snowdrops!!! my card was ruined and then i thought......what is art all about? having the licence to interpret whatever, however you i'm sticking with my lilac snowdrops!!!  LOL..........., so what do you think? I hope it really doesn't matter...........and you like the card, hugs to you all and thankyou for passing by, see you tomorrow!! Vick xxx
P.S Don't forget to check out my fellow team mates blogs for their designs today, SHEENA, GILL and LIN xxx

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my new blog. My dad was in the navy during the second world war (he's now 84). I am fascinated listening to the stories he tells about when he was young, but am sure he most have seen some horrific things.
