Back from the wilderness.....

Good morning everyone I hope you are all as well as you can be...hugs
I have been internet-less since last Tuesday and it was like being cut off from everything :o( It turned out to be my ancient cable modem which has worked hard for about 18 years and has now been replaced by a shiny new space age looking hub. I have even been able to get rid of my router because the new hub has an inbuilt one :o)

My Granddaughter Sian has pledged to eat only £1 worth of food for the whole of April, to see why click here and if you feel able to give then please do :o)

Anyhow, onto my card for today which is 8x8

This is a very simple card using my own photograph of a great crested grebe which I took at Attenborough Nature reserve about 4 years or so ago.
8x8 card blank from ?
Photograph opened in Paint Shop Pro and feathered, then flipped to show two birds together.
Printed and sentiment added in Word using Viner Hand font onto Papermania textured card. Cut with Grand Nesties and layered onto the card then Martha Stewart punched borders added :o)
