One of the lasses on craftycardsrappers Called Betty does some wonderful cards... and she has been usin the these great papers and brill inserts.. so i had to ask where she got them from.. well it was off bearlymine designs so i have ended up with 3 sets of downloadables and one of the great cd's designer extreme 111.. and they are just wonderful... so i had to have a play... the little darlin in the middle of the 1st card is from dotties world(downloadable) i cut the bottom of the card off and used it to make a bookmark to give away with the card...
This is also a bearlymine design paper i have used a stamp from my collection on the front of the paper.. and used a insert from the kit.. but i 4got to take a pic of the did the same as the last one... cut card down and used the spare card to make a bookmark
This is off the bearly mine estreme3 cd.. it has the matchin insert in this one.. i remembered by then to take the pic of the inside of the the image is off a friend off craftycardsrappers.. it came all the way from america last year... the snowmpeople are just fun to colour.. embelishement was off a kits from qvc years ago and just found them again while sortin out my craft christmas bits....
