Constructed !!!!

Well here it is !!!!!

Had to make sure I'd done it this morning before going along to
 Kath's demo at

I might try some in the baker's twine from
The Ribbon Girls )

As usual she gave us an amazing demo day -

with fabulous cards ----
and kept us laughing with her great sense of humour .
And trusty pokey tool in hand !!!
Thank you Kath
