Glad That's Cleared Up ;o)

I made an Easter card last month but I wasn't happy with it, so I never finished it. Then I made another card last week that I wasn't happy with, and it just sat on my desk for a few days. Along came the new challenge for Double Dutch, and it was as if a lightbulb went on over my head: just put the layouts on to clear cards and solve the colour problems and hey presto, two cards finished in, like, ten minutes! I changed the image on the Easter card obviously, I'm just not that well-organized that I'm going to work a year in advance ;o), but still...I was quite pleased with this easy solution :D.

Meet Belinda Butterfly, a perfectly ordinary girl until she got some clip-on butterfly wings for her birthday from her aunt. Now Belinda thinks she can fly, and her parents have their hands full trying to convince her not to jump off the roof to test this flying theory of hers...let's hope they sleep with one eye open!

And this is Thoughtful Tanya, always thinking of other people less fortunate than she is. Tanya is a little rich girl you see, and always gets everything she desires. But instead of turning into a spoilt brat, as might easily happen, she takes the poor kids in her class to the McDonald's she has at her house, and her own private petting zoo, and then they all watch a movie in Tanya's home cinema (an actual cinema, with a huge screen and seating for fifty people!). The kids all call her Saint Tanya behind her back, but secretly they're very pleased to have such an angelic friend ;o)
