  1. Hi everyone, here it is Wednesday evening and I'm trying to get all my jobs done before I'm off to Australia on Friday and I still have my sister's birthday card to make and take with me. Well ladies your cards are just so awesome this week I love them all to bits. It's an amazing combination of Tammy's wonderful images, Arlana's amazing sketch and our design team which makes these cards so magical. Thank you Tammy for being our sponsor I just adore working with your images and I can't wait to see my finished product. Arlana this is a great sketch as it showcases our design papers beautifully.
