Morning all

Apologies for my recent absence whilst I have been quite poorly.  However it won't be long before I am bouncing back good and proper.

Meanwhile I am sharing with you one or two of the mini makes I have been working on using materials from Kraftyhands.  I must say I am so impressed with the quality of their papers and also their toppers and postcards, but in particular the papers.  The quality is 190gsm and the 6 inchpaper packs are only £4.99.  What brilliant value.  My favourites so far have to be 'Kew' and 'Fatale' with 'Emporium of Curiosities not far behind!  but hey there are lots more to try.  I have just had a pack of the 12 inch Retro Roses and oh MY they are GORGEOUS!  AND, you know how normally you lose the small print with 12 inch papers, well, with these the print is still small enough to be just simply to die for!  Nice one Kraftyhands!

So, onto the cards.  They are all mini makes in differing shapes, so quick and simple, very little layering and no stitching.  Heck, this was weird at first as I have got so used to stitching the edges.
