Off to Manchester!

DON'T FORGET TO ENTER MY CRAFTY RIBBONS CANDY...FANTASTIC PACKAGE OF RIBBONS UP FOR GRABS!

Well my kitchen is in!! Just washed down the cupboards and worktops ( I love my sparkly worktop). Just need a few bits and pieces jiggled and it will be completed. I will post some pics tomorrow hopefully.

I had a card order for a girl going to University in Manchester and this is what I came up with. The image I have had on my computer for an age so not sure where it came from. I coloured it with promarkers. The papers are HOTP. I added some text. Made some more flowers from my louvre blinds and this time coloured with distress inks (thanks Crafty Chris). Added some text to the cloud and finished with a few black gems.
