Longing for Summer a piece for Calico

Hi everyone, thanks for dropping in. It's been a bit quiet here, and today again there is just a sneak peek.

I am sorry I have not been around much in blogland, but my day job is keeping me rather busy at the moment, so my apols for lack of comments......
Anyway, here is the preview of the piece that is on the Calico Blog today. If you have the time I would love it if you took a peep.

Thank you for being here just now and have a super week!

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!
