Hi Everyone,I'm still sticking to my new year's resolution i think its a record that a resolution has kept for so long!LOL

Allsorts Challenge - A tag, ticket or label

Anyone 4 Anya- Something completley different - i've used a new folding techinque which is  a spring card

I've used:

DCWV retro papers

I thought i would give promarkers a go but not use them for all my image as i didn't want to ruin it but i think it's turned out really nice so they will be going on my shopping list!LOL
