Another card set and some cards from friends!

My  DD is currently in a school in Cheddar, Somerset just finishing her first teacher training practise and she has asked me to make her some Thank You cards.  Well as she is only 23 I wanted to make something young and funky so I chose these three bright colours ( not my normal choice of card base I usually stick to white).

I was really pleased with the final set, quite simple but they remind my of some stunning Indian sari fabrics I have seen.

As you can see bright fuchsia pink........

bright lime green.......

and bright blue....

I am adding this set to the current challenge over at the Hero Arts Blog (Card sets).

I was lucky enough to receive two beautiful cards in the post this week, the first is from Dawn in New Zealand and I wish you could see this in real life it has the most amazing sparkle to it!

The second is from Jacqueline in France, this is beautiful so soft and delicate. 

 Thanks so much ladies!

Sorry for the long post today.
