Meet Stepashka

As I passed Teddy Bears of Witney shop earlier today, I spotted this cutie in the window on sale for £20 (reduced from £75). He looked so mischievous and cheeky - you can't help smiling looking at him. On the way back home the temptation was too much, I felt that I had to adopt him.

If you love chocolate...

You end up with empty boxes, lol. And they ask to be decorated. So, here's yet another of my altered chocolate boxes with spun sugar inside.

Find you passion

When I saw this image, I loved this girl with an attitude, and thought it was perfect for a birthday card for my forum friend.

We wish you a cuddly Christmas!

Rejoice, rejoice!

For this Christmas I designed an angel image, and Tanda Stamps have efficienlty turned it into a stamp. I wanted my cards to be simple and easy to make, playing with different patterned papers, golden acrylic and inks.
This Angel comes from Ust'-Borovaya, and it's a spectacular wooden carved sculpture, one of my favourite sculptures on display in Perm art gallery. I love its glorious trumpet, it seems to be singing: Rejoice!

Russian journey chocolate box and ATC

I received a set of stamps as a gift from lovely Audrey, whom I never met in real life but would have really loved to hug for her kindness, as I absolutely adore these Russian-themed stamps. To thank her and also wish her a happy birthday I decorated a box of chocolates (Italian, I'm afraid).
The ATC is for the architecture swap.
