One World One Heart.

I have been meaning to join in with this as I think it is an amazing experience and its the last time ever that Lisa will be doing this.So to start with I will show you my door prize or as Elizabeth calls it my thank you gift. I just didn't know what to do for this as I have never been involved in anything like this before, but decided to give a wall hanging that I made a while ago but have hung next to my computer desk as I like it so much. I might add some more to this at a later date.

Now to tell you something about me! I am a 50 something who retired from the rat race early and came to live on an Island in the Mediterranean sea with my husband five years ago. I was originally a scrap booker but took up card making when I moved over here. I have since dabbled in altered art and having a go at most things arty.  So thats me, go and have a look at the One World One Heart site and join in.

Thanks for reading,
