My shining star

Wednesday 16 August 2017


Hello there! How are you? I am good and have just posted off my samples to chocolate baroque for the next show on the 25th August. Its always good to get samples finished and then I can move onto the next makes! Today I have made my ATC swaps for August - I'll save those for another day..... I also made my Joanna Sheen swap card - the theme this monthi is's what I did...

All of the stamps - apart from the 'hello' are by paperartsy - a mixture of sources - the flowers are Kay Carley and I think the large butterfly is Jo Firth Young whilst the litte butterflies are Claire lloyd. The hello is by IndigoBlu. 

I used brushos to make the background which I did after stamping the flowers. It has been done on watercolour card.

My girls are both in the theatre this week - a week to a production - they are supposed to be performing Little Shop of Horrors on Friday night - I wonder what its going to be like - it seems pretty quick to me to get organised!!!!

I hope things are going well for you!

Big hugs
