Darling Marci

Morning

Brrrrrr it is so cold, howling winds and snow blizzards it's actually  a little eery!!!

Just quick for those who have been following the job saga for my hubby YEP he got it!!   Bitter sweet as yes its a job but the pay is awful so it will just have to be a stop gap but hey he is working again so that is the main thing!!  Thanks to all of you who sent good wishes it worked!  xx

Right so my little card today features Marci and I have plopped her on a bench.   I have to thank Delphine for that!  As luck would have it she did a tutorial yesterday on converting jpg to png files and up until then I had no idea!   Its really easy to follow and so easy to do and you can see the tutorial HERE at Delphines Place!

In my head ( a strange place) little Marci is sitting in beautiful gardens in Paris dreaming of love and happy things,,,,,,,,,,,,ahh!!

Here she is hope you likey...........

gorgeous card Karen, love the soft lilacs. So pleased your hubby got the job! And it always seems easier to get a job when you're already in a job (if that makes sense!) so hopefully something will come along soon that is more what he wants to do!
