Thank you, thank you if you sent me an ATC, you certainly didn’t have to and I really enjoyed your gift. I mean, given such a difficult theme, how well did everyone interpret it? Amazing! I know there are a couple coming from across the pond that may well take their time to arrive, but be in no doubt that opening this sort of mail never gets old and I will show and tell as they show themselves.
Sorry about the blue lIght - that’s early morning and a rubbish photographer for you! So my actual working area is empty and relatively clean which is remarkable, to be honest.that great big Stampin’ Up butterfly was used to stamp an ATC for my friend Karen, we swap on a chosen theme each month and this month was Wings. Well of course that stamp is so big I had to make two ATCs on a fold, otherwise it would have been only one wing. You can just see the yellow pearly background of my initial idea under the stamp box. The blue shrivelled pieces are gloves that I use when using sparkle paints…it’s quite long lasting as a stain on your hands and not exactly easy to get off your face either. Ask me how I know. It’s all waiting to be tidied away of course, but I have to. I’ve had the go ahead on a design idea for the commissioned invitations and so everything needs to be clear and spotless before I start on those. Probably goes a long way to explaining why I don’t really take commissions!
So then, please keep calm and carry on, link absolutely as normal. I can’t guarantee the same response if you leave the asterisk * on your name this week, but if it doesn’t come off, don’t worry, we’ll admire its prettiness!
