The dimension is wonderful as is that window frame.
Wonderful attention to detail.

Don't know which is worst being too early or too late - I usually fall into the early category! This is a lovely card for the first challenge and I'm a great fan of Polkadoodles imagery which really lends itself to alcohol markers. A clever card with lots of detail - love it.

Gorgeous card Val, I love all those pretty flowers & that beautiful windmill scene. Thanks for all the support recently, much appreciated! We babysat Charlie all day yesterday, much fun was had my all. Not easy getting up off the floor lots of times I have realised though!Charlie also went swimming last week & loved it. He didn't look too happy in the pic I have though:) Viv xx
