New Beginnings.......

Good Evening and welcome back to my blog its been a while since I posted aything that is different from My Besties ....

I won't be posting any of My Besties images for a while now as I have resigned from the DT co-ordinator position on the Uk team.... I felt that this was the right thing for me to going forward as I need to have a change of direction...

I have some lovely Saturated Canary and magnolia  projects  to share with you soon too...
 
Today I have coloured this fab image from Make it Crafty  and later I will be sharing my card and how to make it and all the colours I have used to colour it .... 







Thanks for stopping by today I look forward to sharing all my new projects with you soon

Regards
Carol xxx
