40 today

Not something I was looking forward to. But I feel like the most popular girl in the class today, I got so many cards and phone calls and email greetings. I am so deeply touched that people remember and think of me. Thank you all! You made my day!
My special thanks to my niece who drew this wonderful hedgehog playing a violin. She's 6 years old.
She also wrote a very sweet message inside, bless her. Isn't it fabulous?

recent what to call it?

artwork? too pompous... creations? again, a bit too loud... something I made in between running after Sasha who's on the stairs to the attic again, serving him chocolate muffins and changing his DVDs and videos and computer games etc etc:)
A birthday card and four more or less same-ish ATCs for an ATC swap titled Poetry. I have chosen yet again Francois Villon's poem "Ballade des Dames du Temps Jadis ("Ballad of the Ladies of Times Past") .

More DT cards

I had to produce this batch at a rather short notice, and we also moved home just two weeks ago, so life is pretty hectic here.

Ready Steady Design

This is a selection of my Design Team work for Stamp Addicts, using the latest stamps from Judikins and PrintWorks range - JK Poppy Mosaic (that I found most inspiring), PW Life is in Bloom, PW New Curls, JK Happy Flowers, JK Solid Vases cube (another excellent stamp that reminded me of ancient Greek vases) and a PW Life blossom quote stamp.
It is a bit like Ready Steady Cook programme, you can use only a limited amount of stamps that you get and some other stamps by the same companies. I also got two lovely Stazon inks in lilac and fuchsia pink, hence my choice of palette for many cards, JK glass beads (I never tried them before).

trolley dance

yet another charming piece from Antnhec. Great to see people throwing away their inhibitions and enjoying the freedom.
