Happy Monday, my dear friends, and a huge thanks to those who visited my blog, whilst I was busy with my grandchildren, technology is a wonderful thing, when you think about it....I have a fabulous, tiring weekend, and will probably need a couple of days to catch up...

Incy Wincy Designs would like to see "Gatefold Cards" it has been a while since I did one, and here is what I come up with:-
