I'm a Paper Anorak!

Yep - it's true! I treated myself to a few sheets of My Mind's Eye "papers" (they are really thick quality papers!) - and I just LOVE them! No...I really LOVE them!
I've used 2 of them here to create a card for Melissa's wednesday challenge. This week you had to "case" a card she had cased...! I've also used a mixture of Heidi Swapp blooms and hero arts flowers, a piece of "trim" that I got in Walmart (love that you get so many fab crafty things there!), and 2 tiny pebbles (sweet pea!) that I've had in my stash since the year dot!
I wasn't very happy with this last night when I'd made it, but today, in the sunlight, it looks much fresher!
I'm off to the disney ice show with the kiddywinkles (5 nieces/nephews) this afternoon, then somewhere for dinner with them. We love taking the kids to these shows, but last year we missed it because Colin's mam had just died; this year he's missing it as he's had to go see his dad as he's unwell...c'est la vie! bx
PS sorry about the poor photo - I miss Colin's steady hand to help me! bx
