Hey Sandie, great challanges. I just got some new My Minds Eye papers, so you never know, might get some done this week. Thanks for your comment on my organza flowers. Follow my link to Jennifer's site where I learn how to make them. So easy, I know you could make them. But I recon you should do them out in the kitchen, away from your little creative area. You need space around you to do them. x x x

Sandie said...

Hello there Wirg.

Great to hear from you (did you get my last email....hmmmm...not sure?)

Love My Minds Eye pp's - hope you can join in.

Thanks for the tip on making those flowers out in the kitchen area.

Shall share with you when I get myself organised.

Have a great day.

Luv Sandie

Liz Weber said...

Sandie said...

I have been working on a couple of my cards using these gorgeous ribbons.

Hope to take some photos over the weekend to update my list.

Hi Sandie - Looks like a great challenge you have going here!! Should have logged on to your blog earlier!!!

Good to see you are just as active as ever ... and that everything is well in the Downey household!!

Sandie said...

Hi Annie, great to hear from you.

You are more than welcome to join in - let's face it - I have some serious catching up to do myself - it's quite embarassing actually - but hey life gets a little hectic at times doesn't it? Not to worry.
