New stash!

Hello lovely peeps,
Tonight I have 3 cards to share with you. All in different styles but they all have 1 thing in common...... They all use the wonderful new papers and ephemera designed and made by the lovely Linda  Simpson. Who has set up Emerald city crafts. They are so nice and come in 2 styles in A4 packs, 6x6 packs and the ephemera. You can get them on her Etsy store.
Here's my makes.

I really enjoyed having a play with them. They are awesome. Hoping to get in the craft room tomorrow seems like I have not had much time lately lol. 
Hope you are all well, it's very cold at the moment brrrrrr. The lovely Heather Won my crafty giveaway, well done.

Take care 
Big hugs & thanks so much for stopping by xxxxx
