Gorgeous card Nic, stunning image and amazing colouring as always.
I have been busy this week so not seen previous posts but just scrolled to see your itching saga - have you tried tea tree lotion, works well for me, my legs started itching this week and thought my celulitus was returning and my veins itching so put lots of cream on at nightime and it helps. - Just a thought and may be worth a try x Susan x

Jane said...

Me again Nic, love this one too! Just wanted to say I managed to get my hands on the Astonish and although I didn't think my windows were that bad I am utterly astonished to the results. Couldn't get mine for a £1 sadly, had to result to Amazon but it was certainly worth it. Thanks for the advice. Take care, love Jane x
