bit of string pinched from my nans greenhouse (shhh don't tell I will get a thick ear ..Lol)

Hi Kerry

I've just stumbled across your blog and just love your cards they are simple and stunning.

I had a quick question to ask .. I also have the digi images that you have but when I tried to colour with prismas I ended up with the printer ink running and the paper wasn't too good (tried Stampin Up whisper white!) what do you do to stop your ink running and what card/paper do you print in .. I'd love to get the same stunning results as you do.

Great cards! I like how you used "recycled" finds on your fishing card. It's always fun to use a cardmaking use out of simple, every day things.

Love them all.
