'Time to DL it!'

I decided on this fortnights theme over at My Time To Craft, after Nige came home with 100 cream DL card blanks lol! He got them from the post office after posting Hazel's birthday card for me. The good thing is they were only £2 per pack of 50!!! Not quite sure how many I will use, but I'm glad Nige can see a bargain lol!

Anyhoos as you have probably guessed by now, the theme is....


 DL stands for 'dimension lengthwise' whatever that means lol. Here's the link I found explaining what a DL was. More confused after reading it than I was before....
