Sarah said...

Oh brilliant!! Love the image and your layout - colouring doesn't even need mentioning, perfect as always!!

I never really got into Harry Potter - it passed me by completely. I like Tolkien, the Thomas Convenant books and, of course!, Terry Pratchet.

Sarah

PS - I was using Neenah solar white paper when I had the bleeding problem. I don't normally use it - it's either Craftwork Cards or Joanna Sheens Elegance for me - won't be using it again either!
