tree atc swap and more tags!!!

Hello there. How are you? I hope you are well and happy! I'm squealing with excitement as yesterday me and my lovely mum and girlies booked to go and see my sister in New Zealand - a winter trip - so very excited!!! Not sure what school will think about it - but its booked now! I think the educational value to this is way higher than what they'll be doing at school!

I want to share my trees ATC swap with you - I suspect that this has gone missing in the post. I received a torn piece of the SAE that I sent with it  through the post... plus a card I posted at the same time didn't turn up so I'm not very hopeful of these having reached Jo.

I made these in the last Clarity Cumbria session when we were in Africa! Not literally of course!

I love the little pumba stamp - so much like the lion king!!!!

I have a couple more technique tags to share with you today too - 

This was the technique from day 3 inspired by the lovely Jenny Marples - well done Jenny!!!

This is my first tag from day 4!!! Distress crayons - alot to learn methinks!!!!

Hope you have had a good day. We have Shaun's brother and his family and his mum arriving tomorrow so please forgive me if I'm quiet - they are here because we are putting Shaun's ashes into the churchyard on Sunday - not a day I am looking forward to but I feel I need to do this.

Big hugs

Rachel xx
