I'm Back!!!

Am back from a fabulous mini holiday in Windamere BC - went with friend who started Grade One with me - amazing we have managed to remain in touch all these years. We had such a good time - shopping, eating, drinking tea and just enjoying the scenery and each other's company. How lucky am I?????
Hope to get some cards made in next day or two!

Mingle card

Each month a group of us exchange a hand made card - this month, the card was supposed to be for a male (Father's Day, Birthday, etc). I rec'd a lovely card from Genie who lives in Ohio - wanted to share her card.

Cards as Birthday gift

Have dear friend in UK who is very busy and hasn't had time to make some cards so have made 6 and will send her another 6 soon. Here are the first 6. The challenge to these cards - they measure 8.5x5.5 - they are a double fold as opposed to a quarter fold that I usually make - quite a bit larger but that is the size she likes.
