I'm on a roll

Hi Everybody,   First I want to say Welcome to Dora, nnalorac and Doreen and thank you so much for adding your names as followers.  Secondly I want to say a very sincere thank you to all of you who left comments on my card and your kind words and wishes for my son.  Now - a few days ago I bought two beautiful Melissa Francis paper pads and the first card is from the 5th Avenue pad.  I wanted to do a card that showed the paper rather than have it just a sliver in the background.  The second card is from another pad of paper that I had called Tilda Autumngarden and I was just using up a topper that I had printed off a cd and coloured ages ago.  Thank you  for looking in.

Absolutely stunning cards! I could look at that bow on your first one forever. You don't even want to know the fiasco I've had over the weekend trying to tie them. Bad, really, really bad. LOL. I'll just live vicariously through your bow tying skills. :)

Your cards are just so elegant and amazingly beautiful. Love the "rainbowy" shimmer of that frame on the second one!
Wonderful and inspiring cards as usual.
Have a super day!
Hugs,
Lisa xx

She basically uses her fingers like a bow easy then. The great exception to that it the easy versatility of gauging your bow size just by the width you hold your fingers apart! That was an excellent tutorial.
Thank you SO much!!! Perhaps my weekend will be salvaged now..LOL
hugs!

Have a great week.

Fabulous cards Marie-Louise. Totally envious of your MF papers they are gorgeous. Your pink roses look stunning in the surround.
I love the Art Deco image of your second card, it sitts brilliantly in the frame.
