Yep am still here.......

Hi, in case you don't know am doing the 29 Faces which can be seen HERE on my other blog.

Recently I won a pack of Graphic 45 Couture papers from Ali-Craft. I really found it hard to break into it as every page is just beautiful.   But a special card was needed for a lady who is celebrating her 80th Birthday this month and these papers had to be broken into.



The colours are beautiful and every page is double sided, which allows you to make tags and booklets etc., how good is that.

Thank you for popping in, am back again on Friday with Faces 7 and 8 HERE, should you like to see.

Have a great weekend, hugs Annette x

I'm like that about embellishments, never want to use them for anyone else LOL. Anyway, it was well worth you breaking into the Graphic45 pad - your card is wonderful.
