This is my first post for today, please pop back later to see my creation for Natalie & Amy's challenge xx

Today see's my third creation for my guest designer spot over at Card Mania. I will say I am feeling rather please with myself...I don't know if you remember I wrote a few weeks back how I had only ever made 1 maybees 2 DL cards before & then Nige found an amazing bargain of 100 cream DL card blanks for £4. Well I have used my second one today....only 98 to go lol!! But I am loving thinking totally out of my comfort zone. It might sound silly but the thought of doing anything other than square scares me!!

Anyhoos enough of me yappin.....this fortnights challenge over at 'Card Mania' is ......


Now when I saw this theme I did wonder what to do, but then I had a brainwave & below is what I created....
