My mind not only wanders, sometimes it leaves completely.

I made this for a window display in a hairdressers, and after photographing it ,thought it would make a good card.

I should have used a white geo for it to fit with the challenge, although Tweety has got whites in his eyes :?

After I have delivered it I may do something else while I am having lunch !!

Hi all, My example of a valentines card. This was a fast one, as you can see by the "loose weaving". A cross weave would have been much better, as you can create a very neat and tight weave at speed!!

On the way home I popped into Clintons Cards to get a Valentines day card (to send to myself and pretend it is from a pretty lady  :roll: )

I saw a nice card, and thought I could re-create it in balloons

Hi Anna,

You have been busy, I hope you had time to relax and get pampered this Valentines  :D  :D
I like the last dove on the heart the best.....so simple and elegant !!

Valentines day has really been draging itself out here. I've not done anything special, just lots of odds and ends.

Anyway, last one today, for a guy who is taking his girlfriend out to dinner tomorrow. (I hope he got her something on the day as well, or he may not be around tomorrow  :D )

Hi Kevin, your teddy is so cute! I'm sure the girl loved it! As for me I carried the last things I made to the hospital and the children were delighted to offer them to their moms.(So tender!)
Best regards.
Anna :D

Did he win a prize? and I think Kenny did mention this to me a while back but I forgot to post, apologies as it's been very busy. Which one of his entries won?
