Hi all,
I have never been so glad to see the end of a week. It was my friend's funeral today, which was more of a celebration of her life really, as her children were there. There were so many people there, some had to stand outside the church and listen through speakers.
I am a day late for my CRAFT challenge post this week. This week we are sponsored by AiFactory, who are offering the winner 2 digi images from their store. We have a colour challenge this week - colour Savannah, and here are the colours:
My image is from My first rainbow set, by AiFactory. I have used papers that were a magazine freebie years ago, and paper pieced the bird. The flowers are from Wild orchid and the ribbon is from my stash. Please check out the rest of the fab projects by the DT.
