Tag winners and a quote page

Hello friend and thanks for dropping in! Thank you for all your kind comments on my tags on Valentines day. !2 of you acually specifically stated you would like to get one, so I decided to use random org to sellct two winners, so here goes:

Number 3 Counting down the list that is Alveen

Doing it again for tag number two:

Number 9 Again, counting down, that is Candy C.

Ladies, if you let me know your addresses they shall be on the way to you shortly 😍

Alright, now for a little new project sharing: As I am trying to become better at lettering, I like to create a lettered quote in my bullet journal every now and so often, so here is the lates page I did:
I found this quote and lettering style on Pinterest and copied it, just in different colours. I used my Prisma Premier softcore pencils for the letters and Gelatos for the background.

Wished I'd kept the background simpler as the whole page has become too busy, but like usual, live and learn, that's what this whole journey is about isn't it?
Anyway, hope you are having a good week, and like always, thanks for your visit!

A lovely page Astrid, the background looks very subtle and doesn't detract from the beautiful font and colours you used.
I've been a terrible visitor lately, so I'm off for a catch up.

Gorgeous lettering Astrid. You created a great page. I have terrible penmanship so even if I practiced I don't think I could ever do anything as nice as this. :) Hugs-Erika

Congrats to the tag winners and congrats to you Astrid on your lettering. It looks truly wonderful to me. To me the background complements rather than dominates. I'm in awe of your many talents and so glad you share them with the rest of the world.

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!
