Hiya Sue. I fell in love with this beautiful card the very first time you showed it to us. My kind of card, my favourite autumnal colours and was lucky to be given the Bushel Basket as one of my Valentine gifts, so looking forward to using it once the MD and Easter cards have been stocked up. A really lovely sample thanks Sue.
Sending Saturday love and hugs your way xxx

Hello Sue,
This is a really lovely card and is one of my favourites! The Bushell Basket is lovely .I only have the wheelbarrow so far but a similar card could be made using it. Love the gold pen tip!!
Pat L - thanks for the update on little Sarah. Hope it’s a good trip for the family.
Laine - I’ve been going to bed early this week as still not on top form! Therefore I’ve missed your posts! So sorry you have been mucked about but trust all is ok now. Oh I agree there is nothing worse than a catfight! We very rarely hear that here but remember them from years ago. Good to know Mum is a bit better too. I do hope you get that card ASAP. You just can’t rely on some folk!! : )
Yvonne , trust you are feeling better! I’m just cheeky.
Congratulations to Cornucopia - I love your name too!!
