Box card

Hi everyone,

a lovely box card to share with you today with a Molly Blooms image

Such a summery card to add to the collection.
I apologise for my lack of blogging lately I have been very busy with my new job which has been long busy days just lately and also I had a craft fair at the weekend which I spent most of my time preparing for...
I also had an order from a lovely lady for a wedding box full of notelets for her daughters wedding- the idea to use them as thankyou cards for the gifts. A very large order but I was delighted for her custom and that she liked my work so much!!
Another bit of good news is that I can now announce I am now part of Team Kitties for Kitty Bee Design Team :) so pleased to work with these beautiful images.
Right best go get crafting.
Catch you all soon
Hugs Katie x
