Frozen Saturday……


Today I did a little demo at the Craftbarn in Lingfield.  Phillip valiantly tried to clear the drive way yesterday in the hope that I could get out. Then we woke to find more snow! He went out again and managed to break up the ice and get his car off the drive my hero!  He was so lovely and drove me to the Craftbarn for my demo phew!

This is one of the cards I demoed.

I have coloured the Motivet image with distress inks. Distressed the background with weathered wood and edged this with walnut stain. Added my stardust stickles and mounted this onto a cuttlebug scalloped square.

I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who wished baby Isabella well. She is recovering so well now and definitely on the road to recovery. Claire and I were so touched by your support and concern thank you so much!

Take great care and thank you so much for looking!
