While I was away, my kind neighbours looked after some Roses I recently bought when I was at a recent Rose fair here in Ulm, so I made a card with a rose on it to thank them for taking care of them so well.

Colouring with Zigs & Prismacolor

I have been thinking about this and would really like to do so but I couldn't really find places to send them to. So I┬ádecided to create an Instagram and Facebook page called… Continue reading Create Kind Cards
