I'm a Christian, married to my wonderful husband, Adrian, since 1978 (where has the time gone?). We have two children, Michael and Elizabeth who are just the best children we could have wished for, we're so blessed, and proud of them. Michael and Aisling,our daughter in law, have a daughter Bronwyne Ann. Elizabeth is married to Martyn. I use my crafting to raise funds for various charities. The charity that I'm currently sponsoring is Save The Children

Multi Challenge Card
I'm lucky this week to be able enter one card in three challenge blogs. It would have been a couple more had I pulled my finger out and got cracking with the card instead of browsing my way through lots of blogs!
With hindsight I should have made this a square card as I think, the more I look at it, that it looks empty. If it doesn't grow on me I might try and demolish it and re-do it square. Unless my daughter approves of it as she is very honest where my cards are concerned. I think that I should have used a stronger green cardstock too.
I stamped the images onto the patterned paper, cut them out and mounted onto the green card and then cut the circles out using Nesties.
Does anyone else re-act the same to their cards as I do to mine? It's a wonder that I ever manage to send them to anyone, let alone sell them!
