Well good morning to all you lovely people it is Saturday morning and that means one thing “Craft your Days Away” The theme this week has been chosen by Lesley 


We are being sponsored this week by Charmed Cards and the winner will get TWO Digi Bundles of the Winners choice
My card uses a stamp from Paper artsy coloured as usual with Promarkers and I have added some gems on to the tree. The backing paper is a Pink Petticoat download as is the sentiment. I then added a ribbon. I hope you like
