Luxury Weekend ...


I spent a glorious weekend down in Bedford with Gwyneth. Honestly, it was like staying in a 5* Hotel !!! That woman has more stamina than I will ever have, and kept me up into the wee small hours laughing and chatting. I really managed to completely chill out and was extremely sad leaving to go home. If you're reading Gwyn - once again, very many thanks xxxx

The twinchies and frame above is a gift that I made for Gwyneth. I used all TH dye ink pads, mostly TH stamps together with Hero Arts, Autumn Leaves and UNITY. Lots of sandpaper, distressers, blossoms, dye cuts etc. were used, and some of the images are 2/3 layers of stamping.

Thanks for popping by !
