Elaine said...

Another stunning card Nic but then I never see a card on your blog that isn't ♥
I adore the colours, so soft and pretty, and the paper piecing is fab (I really must do that more often as I love the effect, just always forget)

I had hayfever when I was a kiddy but not since I grew up and then about 10 years ago I had the most awful year when my eyes just streamed and people kept asking why I was crying. And my nose was so bunged up I had a headache for 4 months, but then it just vanished and touch wood I've been fine ever since!! Weird or what?
Hope you get some relief

Big hugs
Elaine xxx
