I love these art pads for their versatility and ease of making some quick and beautiful cards. I also find that just adding my favourite two embellishments of organza ribbon and gems or pearls is all that is needed to finish it off, so these are my go to embellishments every time.

Well that's all from me today. I apologise for being AWOL at the moment on the commenting front, I've been seeing your lovely makes in my feed but I have not had time to pop in on you - things have not settled down as I thought and then I spent 6 hours in A & E on Tues/Weds with one of my daughters, although she is fine now thank goodness, so I have some catching up to do.
Thank you all for your comments here though and I will visit you soon.
