No card today, after reading Jacqui's blog yesterday, I thought I would show you all my parchment lady I made a couple of years ago for my mum in laws birthday, sorry about quality of photos they were taken on hubby's blackberry last nite.
Hopefully you can see it, I ended up making 6 of these it then put me off it a bit as it is such a lot of work, but Ilove the white on white look I still have this pattern so I might get it out & make 1 for myself
Thank you for taking the time to visit me & for all your encouraging comments I really do appreciate them all. I wish  Spring would come its so very cold. well thats all for today x Sue x
