From small beginnings...

When I got home from work today I was so excited to find the first set of ATCs for the new swap waiting and what amazing ones they are - thanks Dawne, they ae superb and whoever gets them will be so glad of them. Anyone who wants to join in with us then check out the posts below - the more the merrier.



I thought I'd also update you on what I've been up to since the New Year. As part of my Outdoor Education Course, I spent a cuple of days living in a wooden hut (with walls missing!) in the middle of a forest in -9 degrees!!! Despite this, I was nice and warm and very cosy in my sleeping bag and managed to have a good 11 hours kip - the most I've had in ages!


And seeing as I haven't posted a card in a while, I thought I'd show you one I made for Christmas (a bit late I know). I wanted to make a 'big' card and so used an A3 piece of card stock. I've taken a pic next to my uual C6 card to show the magnitude of the other one.
Decoupaged it up to add dimension.

Lovely card paul and looks works great on the large size, you must be off your head sleeping out, but well done you, and another experience to add to your list of life. ju x
