Good Afternoon Folks
I hope you are all well?
Sorry I have been absent for a few days, I have been trying to
learn how to use my new toy....Silhouette Cameo, it is really fantastic,
but I need a lot more practise.
I have managed to get a card completed, it is another card with an image from  my
favourite  digi image designer 
Heather Valentin, you can purchase all the images from
Right, back to my card, I have used
Eleanor & Lily Strawberries
first I must apologise to  Lily, I have just seen I did not colour her hat,
which I will do now, but I am still using the photos.
I have also used a background I cut on my Cameo, also I made a sentiment  but, I
think my Welding needs more practise, it says
"You are my Sunshine", which I thought apropriate, as it is a
Lacy Sunshine image.
I hope you like this card
