A massive thank you.

Don’t you just love getting crafty post? I have had a fair bit over the past week or so and would like to say thank you to all the lovely ladies out there who have sent me these beautiful pieces of artwork. Firstly thanks go to Lindsay Prince (aka Potter) who organised the ‘all about me’ swap. I received these two lovely ATCs from her (the bright pink one which opens up to reveal details inside as shown in the second photo) and from Linda Brunton. The two ATCs couldn’t be more different and yet both tell me so much about the wonderful people who have made them. Fabulous.
I have also been the lucky recipient of three more fat book pages. This enchanting one is from Dorothy Wilmott and I love the parchment butterflies and the saying which comes from a Hans Christian Anderson story.
The second one is from Kerry Knowles, and I just love the sentiment ‘Beauty surrounds us’, it is so true of nature and of this lovely page. I like the way that Kerry has hand drawn the swirl and the little bells are really cute.
This final one is from Isobel Waite and uses the K&Co background paper to great effect. I love the unusual addition of the copper corners and the cut out butterflies are very effective. Thank you once again all of you. This book is going to be beautiful when it is finished.
Love,
Caro
