Bingo at Elphine House Australia

We have such a fun challenge for you at Elphine House Australia this fortnight.  Let's play "Bingo"!  Use any THREE in a row.  I used Die Cuts, Flowers and Ribbon.

My internet is finally fixed and I sure hope it stays this way.  Not only has it been challenging to comment and visit but I've spent most of the last 3 days on the couch struggling to breath with all this humidity and feeling my heart going 100 mph.....  Oh if only I had listened several years ago and quit smoking sooner.  I know, I did it to myself, it was never going to happen to me!!! If there is anything I can ever do to help just one person quit smoking, for sure, I'm here to help.  Don't be another one of those people who says or thinks, "that won't happen to me", because one day it will.

Think I must be going though Christmas card withdrawal as I haven't made any for over a month. Here it is almost July and I'm way behind on getting my cards made.  I hope you like this cause I sure had a lot of fun making it.
