Good morning all, thank you so much for all of your entries last week but can I say how sorry I am not to have commented on some of the entries but I will put that right during the course of the coming week. I have been quite unwell with a chest infection and haven't been on line much at all, prefering to go to bed early once I'd got in from work. I'm now on another course of antibiotics and hopefully these will do the trick and I'll be fighting fit for this weeks entries.

Last week we said goodbye to Colleen who has done a fab job for us over the last month but as you all know as we say goodbye to one guest we say hello to another and for me this month is a bit of a treat as my sister is joining us, Sue has been enjoying her crafting for a slightly shorter time than I have but she is making some lovely things so we thought it was about time she joined us as a guest.

She has written a bit about herself and I have pinched it off her blog to share with you all, please go over and have a look at what she does, she loves to have visitors and you'll find her here, this is what she says about herself.

I have always held an interest in arts and crafts. I started with dress making and knitting, both came in very handy when I started my family. I started making cards after my mum became interested in it, she made some beautiful cards and gave me some bits to start me off, from there I found scrapbooking and it just took me over. I love digital scrapbooking with serif's craft artist and this has brought me right back to making cards. The more I make the more I want to make and learn all the techniques. I follow lots of blogs for the inspiration, tips and talent that I have found out there hoping to find my forte, I love shabby chic and distressed but as yet have not got it mastered so onward and upward untill I do.

So now we are onto this weeks challenge and as the title says the theme this week is Trees and Shrubs, the team have all come up with something different and our guest just to get off to a flying start has given me three cards to choose from so instead of choosing I'm going to share them all with you.
