I used this sooo cute Fresh Squeezed Jokester image and coloured with Copics and Star Dust stickles added here and there :-) The papers are Amy Tangerine from a Sketchbook pack and I used a brand new Circles border die which is made by Memory Box for a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives series.

Hi Lorraine, I just wanted to say thank you for pointing out I had word verification on. I really didn't think I had but it turns out new blogger doesn't allow you to not select it. I think I've sorted it out now though. New users won't be able to change it for long though it seems. Anyway thanks again Jo @ T4T xx

Donna Hanley said...

I love this card. Your background paper looks good with the added yellow circles. The MB die looks terrific. Thanks for sharing with us.
