Not-so hidden talent.

If there’s one thing you can be sure of, it’s that the personal touch goes a long way. That’s why Amanda Cross’s handmade cards have been such a hit with her friends, family and colleagues.

Amanda has created a range of beautiful designs for her cards, and has even found time to hold a stall, selling her wares, at the supermarket she works for. The result? She’s raised over £400 for dementia research. Amazing!
