Rustic Blue

Hi Everyone… It’s Monday and guess what? .. I’ve got the day off work 🙂  can you see me grinning from where you are yet?? lol

As you probably all know, yesterday was my birthday, and I just wanted to thank you all for all your lovely birthday wishes, each and every one was much appreciated..

So i’m in my usual haunt this morning… my wee shed at the top of the garden.     I have made a card already as I wanted to participate in making a gate fold card, after watching Natasha make a couple of them yesterday live on the Wild Orchid Crafts Ustream Channel, she recorded her show and her tutorial is well worth watching, click Here to view the tutorial…. these cards are fun to make!

I made my card slightly different, and gave it a rustic feel…
