  3. Beautiful card Sandra - my guess is I'd need a bigger machine than the Cuttlebug for those wonderful Grand Dies? :(

    Glorious day here yesterday - over three hours of which I spent driving to and from Oxford and then sitting in a (yawn) meeting for four hours. What a waste of a lovely day huh :(
