Love is all around

My turn to choose the theme this week and as its
My wedding anniversary on the 14th Feb (24 years!) how could I not choose a love theme!

Here's my entry which is love of a different kind - Love for friends.

Its an atc for a friendship swap over on the docrafts forum atc section. Ive been swapping there for 3 years now! you can find out how I made it by hopping to my blog here

We have a fab prize on offer this week from Lyn at The Craft Emporium - A surprise 6x6 paper pack from the CHA show in America. Please include a link to The craft Emporium in your entry post to qualify for this weeks lucky winner. you could also hop on over to the Craft Emporium to check out their fabulous sale - I got some brilliant stamps there last week which arrived by the weekend - Brilliant service!

First I'd like to show you Joan's work, our fabulous guest designer of the week.

Here's a little bit she wrote for us about herself
I have always done some kind of crafts, think I started by making dolls clothes for m
y younger sister ! I used to sew a lot but not any more. I have dabbled in all kinds of
painting, my favourite being water colours. I first saw rubber stamping at a little
craft show about twenty years ago and fell in love with it then ( embossing over the toaster or hotplate !) Took lots of class
es ,first at Centograph and then at Art from the Heart, had a serious illness about 3 years ago and gave up the classes
apart from the odd one now and again at Samuel Taylor’s in Leeds, can’t ever have enough stamps or time to craft !

We know that feeling well Joan!.

Go leave her a comment on her blog. She's done such a great job with this and there's plenty more to see there.

Anyway on to our fabby teams work


Wonderful work Teamies!
