Hello America

First of all, the winner of the neon markers, drawn from all the comments left on the post on Letraset's blog is:

Joan Murphins

Congratulations Joan, email me your address and your markers will be in the mail 



Here's one I made for this month's edition of Papercraft Inspirations magazine, on sale now in the UK, very soon in the rest of the world. I had to make four quick cards with a chocolate theme, and decided dipped strawberries would be good for one of them....




Here we are back in the USA - number of times security made me open my case to examine Nestability dies - three, number of times I sat next to a snoring guy (not my husband!) - two, number of times I fell asleep when at last I had a chance to do so - zero. So all in all, a pretty average journey really, and an average sort of settling in period as well, the computer sulked about being put on endless conveyor belts, the water heater didn't realise it's summer vacation was over and refused to heat any water.....never mind, I plan a quick trip to Dunkin Donuts tomorrow, that will make everything right

It sounds like another eventful journey, so have you visited Michaels yet, am in Florida myself in a few weeks and will be watching eagerly to see what bargains you find. Hugs, Amanda x

Just as well you can keep your sense of humour when things aren't going right Enfys. Your card looks yummy, chocolate dipped strawberries are so much better than donuts! Pat x
