  3. Hi Coops

    I too share my bedroom with a "snoring alarm clock" LOL!! Can't complain though because apparently I am guilty of such annoying behaviour too .. .. not that I believe that for one minute!!

    Love your card - brilliant image so well shaded. Great colour choices and wonderful distressing too.

    Enjoy your Sunday.

    Love Jules xx

  14. Hi Coops I truly adore this card its beautiful. The papers are lovely & soft so it doesn't take the emphasis off your image & your fabulous colouring. Honest I think this is brill & I've just been on Ebay & brought mesel 1 of those distress tools he he he. Its no wonder us crafters have never got any dosh lol. What a shame you missed the other challenge they wud of loved this. I have to roll my snoring clock over onto his side....I always tell him its for the best.......well he lives then til the morning lol. Take care hunni
