If you see me on a Train dont talk to me!

It happened again, i NEEDED to buy another Maggy-no its true this time. I have been going to Cardcraft Plus in Preston for a few days to help Anne-Marie prepare for the Pick of the Day on Ideal World (Tuesday 9pm) I have had to use the train because my car let me down, anyway, whenever i make eye contact with anyone on a train they turn out to be a looney and want to talk to me for the whole hour journey,sooo, i took a handful of PM's and a few stamped images and just kept my head down,woohoo it worked!  but i ran out of images and needed some for the homeward journey on friday.  In my defense, i spent 4 days surrounded by a craft heaven and didnt spend very much!

Right then, my card. I had the 2 Maggy challenges in mind when doing this.

The paper is from Papermania.  The sentiment is a LOTV.  The flowers i won from Wild Orchid, Yay!
The doily is my Die-namics cutting die.  I may have bought the tag die from Preston with my Maggy....

Looks far nicer in he flesh.
