Talented Lady

I want to share a link to Barbzcards with you, Barbara is my Aunt and a very talented card maker and scrapbooker. The link will take you to her blog to see the swap she made for the recent Stampin Up! Convention in Canberra. I love her swap it's beautifully thought out, the colours pop and it's useful. She is a constant source of inspiration to me and therefore to my customers. Thanks Barbz
