Good evening.Well i've just cleared up after tea and done the dreaded ironing and thought i'd have a little rest and show you a few cards i've made recently. I made these really quick and simple Tilda cards as my nan has a lot of grandchildren and always asks me to make cards for them so I thought i'd make a batch up ready to personalise when needed.I stuck to the same layout for each one just used different images and papers etc.
Thanks for stopping by xx
