Purple floral decoupage card and 4 cards made whilst on holiday in June

After all the time taken to finish the 2 scrap albums for my family last month, I've returned to cardmaking but not had time to upload any cards until today. I've also been away on an amazing weekend retreat and a week in Devon in June. I've come back refreshed and with some lovely new stash from the Crafty Devils warehouse in Barnstaple, North Devon. Also at Dartington Crystal, in Great Torrington, the Edinburgh Woollen Mill outlet there has a fill a box scheme similar to the Papermill offer, it came in A5 and A4. I chose A4 and crammed my plastic folder with 104 papers and cardstock. Pearlised, embossed, foiled, gingham, pastels, rich colours, textured, musical scores etc, so many gorgeous designs, all for £5.50, thats about 5p per A4 sheet!
