9th January 2012

We have had a wonderful drive through Sherwood forest today, the sun was shining and the weather was quite mild, we stopped for lunch at a lovely restaurant and afternoon tea at a quaint little coffee shop.
 I think that spring must be on it's way, the daffodil shoots are peeping through, the primulas are in flower, I hope that I am not speaking too soon, we will probably have snow next week.
I am back on my challenge drive now. This card I would like to enter for -
Rainbow Lady's challenge - "Travel into 2012" and
Crafty Ann's challenge - "Lets think hot"

I downloaded the image and imported it into MCS where I manipulated it. I then decoupaged it using  Pinflaire silicone glue. Matted it with gold miri card and and mounted it onto Burgundy coloured card. I finished it off with red satin ribbon.  


  1. Perfect card to say Goodbye to 2011 Trish love it. Thanks so much
