Inspired by Lynn

Yes - I'm back - I know, it's a bit of a shock.. 
I have been creating - just not getting to blog. 
There has also been a bit of gardening etc. done too, in preparation for the forthcoming southern hemisphere winter.

I was inspired by Lynn's card here, but I did adapt it to make it 'mine'.


I used the bright colours as this is for a tween-ager - I kept it simple, and although it looked o.k., it really came to life only when I added the Stickles.


I then added some dimensional Kindy Glitz to either side of the sentiment.


A CAS card that I am happy with - thanks for the inspiration Lynn!

May your day be blessed.
