baby girl

hi all
i have to tell you about a fantastic site i have found,its called  .theclipartfairy  ,i wanted everything she had for sale ,i limited my spending to an amazing cd called easel and plaques bookand easels,there are so so many ready to print STUNNING cards and projects on this cd,with beautiful graphics,they are ideal when making quick elegant cards,all you have to do is add your own flair and embellies,then if you want to personalise them you have a graphics package and artwork you can mix and match,i am acomputer dunce so if i can do it anyone can,here is a card from the ready to print section,all i did was add ribbon ,glitter and a dummy charm,isnt it exquisite.
