More Reminiscing . . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Today is the September to December tiptoe through the archives.The elephant was a card made for Nesta's brother in law. Nesta is house sitting for them at the moment and has told me that the elephant card is still on the mantelpiece.

This card was made in a failed attempt applying for the Creative Expressions DT. I still have a soft spot for this card and still have it as I can't bear to give it away. . . . . .how sad is that?

Ooh, I had so much fun doing the butterfly box. I loved photographing it in the sunlight as it made a fab shadow.

This one was made for a challenge using the gorgeous First Edition Noir et Chic paper.. 

And lastly on this foray into the annuls, Nesta's Christmas card. Still love that SB Tapestry die and Lime Tree Craft's soft gold card.

Thank you for all of your wonderful comments. Its nice to know that those seeing these cards for the first time, are liking them.

Next installment will be January up to date. Thanks again for letting me indulge.

Be good.
