Cards

This week I have been making cards – I started by making a card for a friend and then kind of got carried away…  It has been very therapeutic though, and has given me the chance to practice my best joined up handwriting which I was taught at school by a very old Irish nun.  I never use it in everyday life, way too much hassle, but it looks very old-fashioned and lovely.

I have been raiding my stash and used a luggage label, button and small scrap of butterfly paper to make the card below.
