Now onto my card for your inspiration we where given some images to play with. I used 3 of the images and made a long card kept fairly simple. Coloured images with Promarkers and matted on Mirri card. Paper is from a Papermania Pad which is a few years old this pad seems to go on forever so expect to see some more. Ribbon from stash and some papermania gems for the corners. Glitter and a Funky Foam Happy Holidays from a friend.

Well thats my simple card and it was a nice change from doing a Square card. Oh while you are reading this can you help I was looking for some paper to wrap round my candles while I heat the image. Last year I am sure I used Greaseproof paper but it was white but this year all the greaseproof paper is a brownish colour and am wondering if this is correct. Any idea's I would love to hear them.
