Using a Yvonne Turner image

Hi there blog pals  Have not posted for a few days now because of one thing or another .
A couple of days ago I did manage to create a card using a fabulous image from Yvonne Turner.

This is  one Blessed lady with  a God given talent who is happy to share her creations and so I encourage you to visit  to be as inspired as I .

Welcome to my room and thank you for calling in . Some new followers too which makes me happy so thank you and hope you enjoy your visits .

Now this is nothing like the elegant creations  /style that Yvonne shares but I did enjoy making it .

Card is from my stash of SU stock , Old Olive . Random  papers from my stash . Punched butterfly and ribbon along with some rhinestones the only embellishing .
I think that I could have made the centre strip a bit narrower. But still ..a blind man would be happy to see it , I think .

On Friday one of my craft friends , Jane,  bought along her SIL to join in our craft session .

We  enjoyed  so much chatter and laughter .
While these two made up the kits I had prepared earlier I Cuttle bugged my way through some of my scrap stash . Mind you ..I don't see any dent in the stash at all!!.
Tuesday mornings and Friday afternoons are my R&R  times and I am thankful to " MY GIRLS" for the sharing and caring .

Be happy. It's one way of being wise. - Sidonie Gabrielle Colette

  Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
