Happy Birthday Alan


I have used the Jayne Netley Mayhew CDROM from Joanna Sheen's website to produce this card for my Son - in - laws birthday who lives in France. He has taken up fishing since moving there as they have a lovely river going through their land. The Stardream card is also from Joanna Sheen and is coloured on both sides which is very useful at times. This one is the colour of Kunzite.


Thank you for looking.

Second Egyptian Card This Year


Sorry I haven't been about for awhile but I have been on holiday from work and have been out for days visiting places that are on our doorstep but never get seen. Also had Tony's birthday and our wedding anniversary in the past week so have been celebrating these two occassions.


This card was made for my lovely husband for his 66th birthday. I used once again the super CDROM from Joanna Sheen "Egyptian Adventure" I think I bought this CDROM in the first place because my husband loves anything Egyptian but I have found it so useful for other peoples cards as well. Keep up the good work Joanna!!!


Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog.
