Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Morning folks....what am I up to today....well after a hectic and traumatic week in the cubbyhole...I am putting my Easter Bunny Hat on and am off delivering Easter Eggs and parcels to the grandkiddies but before I do....hoop-de-doo I've actually managed to whip up a couple of cards for one of my favourite challenge blogs.....Daring Cardmakers

The challenge this week is a cracker from Rein.....
make a card with a job theme
and if you have been popping over here this surprise that
sprang to mind

I can't decide if the problem is down to a bit of camera shake...whether my eyes need tested or my specs just need a good old clean...but these pics look a tad  blurry to me.

Why don't you pop over to The Ribbon Girl Blog for a fantastic Easter Give-Away
5 metre bundle of every colour of Divine Bakers Twine...55 metres in total.....yummy
and check out the gorgeous new goodies coming soon at the same time....
