Inspiring Journey

Hi all, it's sneak peek time again here at Words and Pictures... I'm hoping to inspire you to journey over to The Artistic Stamper to see what I've been up to over there.  You'll see I've been indulging myself in one of my favourite colour combinations!


Hope you're all having a great week, and I'll hope to catch up with you out in Craftyblogland soon.

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.
