Mandy said...

Hi Nic,
Sorry I've not been by much I had a sickness bug last week...Have caught up with your posts,your cards are not samey they are all individual and gorgeous,so don't be hard on yourself,your colouring and design are always perfect...As for the prop situation reminds me of my BF Jayne she lived in a row of cottages and you had to walk right across her garden right in front of her back door to get to the other properties back gardens,she kept her prop by the back door she went to hang her washing out and no prop,but there it was holding the neighbours washing up,know what she did marched over took the prop back and marched back,only for her partner to point the neighbours washing was all on the floor in the grass and mud, she made a haste retreat in didn't do it again....Gorgeous card again love the colours,might have to lift your orange colours they work so well together,if that's ok???...Have a great week..
