Hey there crafters,
Well this is a lot of cards for me to be making in such a short space of time, i don't normally make so many cards one after the other and jewellery made too!!?! well all i can say is enjoy it Vick whilst you can cause the old crafters block will soon kick in, it always does! Thats when i will do some fusion painting as its the only thing i do where i don't have to have my mojo! also, John bought me some soft oil paints last year and i must admit i havent picked them up yet, i want to teach myself oil painting florals, not one-stroke folk painting like fusion is, (as that is acrylics) but 'proper' oil painting, i used to paint landscapes in harder oils however, the long brush strokes made my weak wrists swell so i had to stop doing something i loved, so small strokes and florals it is, i must find the tutorial book John bought me to teach myself!
Anyway, enough waffle, here is my card and i am entering it into the following challenges (Anything Goes) (Girl's Birthday Card) (Anything Goes) (Use something that starts with a 'C') so i have used 'Cherry Blossoms'

Hope you like it, thanks for looking and i would love it if you could leave a comment! Hugs Vick xxxxx
