Hello Nic! Huge apologies for being so behind and having missed so many of your gorgeous creations, I have too much going on atm and so little time for blogging (and making cards...) I should be better at the end of the week (soon!!!) Both cards are simply gorgeous! Your image is really fantastic and so beautifully coloured! Love the kraft and your papers and layout are fab:-) I am not even trying to make all the cards I am supposed to make, clearly mission impossible! Lots of hugs delphine xx

Chrissy said...

I always expect to see something amazing, and todays was no exception...the only problem was I took in an intake of breath and choked on the icing sugar on my doughnut..lol..[my moral]..never eat when you are going to look at Coop's cards...
