  1. Hi Margaret- another lovely card and I agree- the image from Meljen is lovely, they have lots of really nice stuff on that site don't they.
    Do you know, I am so impressed with your fence made using the cuttlebug. I have this embossing folder, but only used it so far on the background- great inspiration. I always pick up lots of tips from you, my friend.

  3. I was wondering if you find using the challenges as an inspiration/guide is useful, and helps you pin your ideas down, rather than a 'the world is your oyster' approach? I might try this for myself. I'm sure if someone said, "You can only use pink," or something it would give me a place to start.
