This is a thank you post to my card making teacher and friend Shirley who not only has helped and encouraged me with my card making, but also in putting my blog together and helping me enter my first challenge today - (I could't quite get the link to work!!!). We had a lovely afternoon at Shirley's last Sunday where she shared with us the making of her Vintage New York card that she has entered in a challenge - good luck Shirley. see here . we also got to stamp off a couple of extra images - so watch this space!!!
