Shabby Grungy Fun for Calico Craft Parts

Hi everyone and thanks for dropping in.
Just a preview day today as I have a project on the Calico Craft Parts Blog
I hope you'll take the time to hop over to have a closer look.....
Meanwhile, thank you for visiting and I hope you'll have a creative week!

I also just wanted to let you know that I will have a blogging break all through August as I am spending time with my family in Australia, but I will be back in full blogging mode come early September and meanwhile look forward to visiting your blogs whenever I can.

Thank you for all your support over the weeks and months and I will see you back in September!!

A really gorgeous piece of art, that I really really love. Beautiful colors and great texture on it too. I sure wouldn´t mind to hang something like this on my world, that´s for sure.
Have a wonderful and safe trip Down Under, and enjoy the time you´ll be spending with your grandklids and family there.

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!
