  2. Have just popped over to see your pocket card Astrid, it is beautiful. I love your two tags especially the watercolour effect complimented by the butterfly. The white stamping over the stencilling on the kraft looks stunning. Mo x

  6. First of all BIIIIIIG CONGRATULATIONS on being a granny again this morning. I´m also waiting to get the news myself, as she was due last monday, so hope, I´ll soon get the message too ha ha ha. It sure is very special even I already have 7 girls, but this will be our first grandson, so it´s just as exiting too, I think ha ha ha.
    Then I´ll say wauw you´ve just outdone yourself here once again, and as usual your work is so gorgeous and soooo beautiful as ever hun.
    Have a wonderful long week-end here now everyone.

  20. Hi Astrid. First up, huge congratulations on becoming a Grandma again. What lovely news, you must be over the moon. Family is so precious!! I did actually comment here before but it doesn't seem to have gone through. Having a lot of trouble with Blogger lately and it is driving me up the wall. So if you end up with two comments, I haven't really gone whacko, it's just Blogger playing games. Also, the canvases you have so generously donated are absolutely gorgeous. I take my hat off to you and the other Artists for your generosity. You all make this world a better place. Thank you. ox

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
