I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Getting that vintage look...


Hello everyone, and welcome to the first of two posts today.  I'll be back soon with my DT contribution to this month's Our Creative Corner challenge (now here), but first I'm thrilled to be back as a Guest Designer for Calico Crafts this month.  

I was lucky enough to be asked back after my February stint, and the first of my two GDT pieces for June is on the Calico Crafts blog today.

There's a little sneak peek here, but it would be lovely if you have the time to hop over and take a look at the full make.  I'd love to know what you think.

Thank you, as always, for your fantastic support, and I hope I'll see you again later today!

Beauty is everywhere a welcome guest.

Just hopped over to see the whole piece and it is terrific. Can't believe how you have made simple 'ingredients' into such a wonderful 'cake' lol

Have a lovely weekend
