to answer a few questions i have had the last few days :D
1.the joy craft heart die,i got mine from my local shop.its only about £5.i have googled it and crafts u love have them in stock.
2.my scalloped edge on my cards is pre done,i buy them as ready scalloped card blac
nks.they again are from my local craft shop
3.to distress the edges of my papers/card i use the little tim holtz round distressing tool but it can be done with the edges of scissors.i just find the circle distresser easier and quicker to use.
i  hope these help :D

Hi ya Nic, what a pretty card. Love the way the paper compliments the doily and your image is just beautiful.

Thank you for the very kind comments on my blog - it does help to know that other people (especially someone as talented as you) have confidence crises as well.

Tho I've no idea why you should dislike your cards sometimes - I've not seen an off one from you yet (and I was stalking your blog long before I was following!!).
