Fantastic idea for quick makes. Really effective.

Gorgeous set of cards Nic. You have been busy! I like this layout too and it's great for a quick card although I then spend ages lining all the squares up 'just so'. xx

Christy Beans said...

Such a cute idea! Great for using up cherished scraps and good for all kinds of gift-giving occasions. And 'effective'??? Way better than 'effective'. Festive... Clever... And best of all, shiny! LOL =)
