I'm Back - Guest Designer for 7Kidsforcollegefund - Seeing Spots

Yes it is true, I am back and it feels like it has been forever.  I tell you, you forget how much you rely on your computer don't you.  Well I am pleased to say it appears to be working again now so keep your fingers crossed.

I haven't been slacking though, I have actually made a few creations but haven't been able to download them yet due to time restraints but I have got this one that I had downloaded before my computer went down ready for my Guest Designer spot on the 7 Kids for College Fund Challenge Blog.  The girls over there would like to see your creations using Spots.
This was for a gentleman that was celebrating his 30th Wedding Anniversary and was taking his wife away to the Bahamas.  He had supplied me with the message which was rather long and because it was so personal I didn't think it would be right to have it on show (as I had made an easel card) so I incorporated a secret flap on the front but you can't really see it in the photos but it is where you see the white mat on top of the green.  I then made the box to fit the card.

Well I hope that you all pop over and give all the girls some love as their creations are gorgeous, and we would love it if you would join in the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and I will be back again soon with some more.
I am entering this into the following challenges

I know you have just starting collecting Copics and I know someone who is selling 74 markers and wants £70, which is less than half price. If your interested can you let me know as soon as possible as I'm going to let my DT know and then I guarantee they will be gone.

  19. Hi Max

    This is so gorgeous.

    It is going to be one lucky lady who receives this. It sounds like her hubby and you have both put lots of thought and care into it.

    Beautiful work!!

    I am pleased your PC is up and running again. Our internet has been being a nightmare again but thankfully it seems sorted again now!!

    We just don't realise how much we rely on them do we.

    Love Jules xx
