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...

Peace in the Forest

Hello all, it's lovely to have you drop in today, but I'm sending you away again almost immediately!  I just wanted to let you know I'm over at the Country View Crafts Projects blog today with a card (yes, a card - and not only that... it's a Christmas card).


It would be lovely if you have a moment to pop over and check it out, and I'm finally getting myself caught up a bit (if I ignore the looming tax return), so I hope to be catching up in Craftyblogland too!

Trees have long thoughts, long-breathing and restful, just as they have longer lives than ours.

This is absolutely gorgeous, I love it. Beautiful effects from such simple 'ingredients', you've inspired me to go and have a play with my inks :)

A beautiful card Alison, almost and I say almost very loosely a CAS card except I can see how much work has gone into making it.

Warm crafty hugs from Shirl x x x
