Friday Project with Little Claire
Good morning all - my turn for the weekly project with Little Claire. The card created was one of the 5 that we made in early September in my workshop with Little Claire on the Wirral. The ladies enjoyed creating this card – I hope that you feel a little inspired too.

I hope that you enjoy my little tutorial – masking is sometimes tricky, but hopefully the trickiness isn’t as much a concern now.

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend – let’s hope is it as bright and cheerful as last weekend…………….Autumn is such a creative and colourful month – enjoy!
