I have just bought the Russell Crowe Edwin and I was so pleased with him. Using him with the horse and those leaves, it is stunning.

I've been longing for you to post this one because I adore it - not that it bring memeories of Kevin Costner of course.

It's such a clever card and I admire it every time I see it.

Vicky said...

Long time no visit, sorry...
Hubby's banned me from the PC this week while he's off work...
I seemed to have slipped under the radar today, he's not said a word as yet, it might be that he's feeling sorry for me and know's how addicted I am to blogging and let me off...lol

Gosh that sounded so bad reading it...He's a lovely guy really, it's just that he works away from home all week, so I can't complain can I, I can blog to my heart's contend Monday to Friday's usually....

I am rambling...I had to scroll back to this one Fleur...as all the guy's said, this is a masterpiece...

I think you have got us all kicking ourselves for not thinking of this amazing idea...mind you I wouldn't stand a chance, I can't sew for toffee

Just wished I was more articulate at times like this because it's deffinitly one to be proud of
