Hiya Mel,

Thanks for such a build up and what a welcome.I am blushing.

TH background is gawgus what we have to do to complete a challenge when we dont have the right stamps...possibly took you an age to find your image...all in the name of an ATC challenge.

oh and that arch below is amazing.

look forward to seeing what you come up with for next weeks challenge.

Chriss x

I have just stumbled upon your blog and I wanted to tell you how much I love it. As I read some of the journaling you have done on your cards, I said out loud, "She has lived my life!" I love what you have done with your pain - your card therapy. It never occurred to me to get it out that way, so you have opened my eyes. Your coordination of paper, embellishments and theme is marvelous. Thanks so much for sharing.
