Pollyanna Pickering...

Hi Folks,

Im here today after a busy week, not sure what I've been up too though but the days seem to have vanished!!! 

I have made a few wee cards for the new Pollyanna Pickering DVD which is launching from Creative Crafting World on Sunday and Monday over on Create and Craft TV. Show Times are below.

Now I have said before I haven't really been one to do CD/DVD crafting. I have such a huge hoard of papers that I haven't done much in the way of it. I do love it though. I really like the fact that you can just nip to the computer and print out a piece of paper that's just right instead of spending hours in my cupboard looking for the one piece that I cant find!!! 

So here is my first card. I will have a few over the weekend. This one features an amazing wolf. Its an 8 x 8 card made using white card and die cuts from my ever expanding stash. 

I would like to thank my Dad for the generous use of his printer over the last few days. Mine is terrible and only likes printing black and white images. I think I am going to have to work out how to get a new one!!! 

Thanks for dropping by,

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx
