The weekend has finished and that means the start of Linky Pary #133 over at Make It Monday. Thanks to all of you who joined in last week. So many wonderful creations to inspire, I hope you joined in the spirit of the Party by popping in to some of the blogs to leave a comment. We all enjoy hearing what others think about our work and a bit of praise is good to boost the spirit.
Congratulations go to Rhonda as our featured artist and also to Diana as the winning commenter. Enjoy your prize.
This week we have a new and fabulous sponsor. The very talented Rick St Dennis. I saw some of his images on some cards a while ago and suggested to Michelle(multi talented owner of MIM) that he would be a fantastic sponsor. So.... make sure you pop over to his Etsy shop and check out his digis and his profile. An interesting man!!!
Well, I had better get on and share with you as I have the grandchildren to mind today and at the moment they are in the family room watching the kiddies programmes on tv.
Here is my card.... I decided I would make it an anniversary card and give it to my hubby for our next Wedding Anniversary.
