Welcome to my challenge thanks so much to all of my sample makers! I can't wait to get chatting with all of you and see your creations!
(I have this pesky little thing called work but I will be back!!)
I have to start wrapping up my crafty projects and start the exiting process of packing and cleaning so this is a quick little card using a metal embellishment. Maybe when we get back, I can make another and play with cans!!!
