Welcome to the Blogging World Sandie!

Hi there, I'm thrilled to pop in and let you know that my cousin, Sandie, who lives in London with her hubby, Callum, has started a blog. We've been exchanging emails for the last several months with her gorgeous card creations.  She certainly has the card making bug and I'm sure she'd appreciate it if you stopped by her blog, London Days.  I am thrilled that's she's joining me in blog land!

I also wanted to share a quick card that is going to my Nana who also lives in England.  She sent home some gorgeous hand made sequin pumpkins (I'll have to get a picture of them) with my mum so I wanted to pop her a quick thank you/miss you note.  She's 92 and going strong!

Ingredients:  American Crafts Ribbon; PTI Flower Dies and SU Leaf Die; Jenni Bowlin Pearls; PTI Stamps; October Afternoon 5 & Dime Paper

So pretty and so delicate. The center of pearls makes just the right final touch in my opinion.
