Wow! Look what postie bought me!


My dear friend Lee on Docrafts otherwise known in blog world as Craftyloops has sent me a selection of beautiful flowers, she makes them herself and having them here in front of me I can honestly say they are so beautiful and so well made, I can't wait to make a card and use some of these but first I need a little more time to sit and admire them, wow I wish I was this talented, I don't think I'm the only one who has written on Lee's blog telling her she should sell them to make herself a bit of crafty pocket money.
Here they are...
