Best of Betsy's
I live in beautiful Geraldine, New Zealand, retiring from the Catlins in 2008. I have lived with my very tolerant and encouraging husband for over 50 years, and we have a strong Christian faith. We have a grown family of four and ten lovely grandchildren. Many forms of craft have been my passion for years, but patchworking and card-making have taken precedence.

The inspiration today comes from a website called ZOYA. I chose this[url=www.roomsbyzoyab.com/product/bird---blossom-chandelier_p-1028.aspx][color=red] Bird and Blossom Chandelier[/color][/url]. I used three different Mark's Finest Papers sets, Tweet Blessings for the birds, Brick wall for the branch of flowers, and Hearts Hearts Hearts for the sentiment. The paper is MFP's NEW 100 weight, and is GORGEOUS! I hope you like it. Tis was also for Speedy's Friends Challenge, a Valentine.
