For Mum

Good morning and happy Friday. It's Sue here with my second Letters or Numbers piece, and it's a card for my Mum for Sunday. We'll just be back from our trip to America, we left in what seemed like Winter, so hopefully it will be Spring when we get back.

I've used lots of Art By Marlene stamps and stencils, and there are more pictures here on my blog. 
Have a very happy weekend everyone, and thanks very much for looking x

Guest Designer Post - Jackie Cornfield

Today we welcome our December Winner Jackie Cornfield

I am a mother of two divine girls and mama of one delightful girlie. I have a very indulgent husband who gives me free reign with time and money to indulge my hobby! I have been involved with art most of my working life. I worked in the Art Room at Denby Pottery for 17 years painting table and giftware. As that ended I moved into retail and now work for the Post Office.

Thank you Jackie, a Gorgeous project. Wow to having had a fabulous job working in the Art Room at Denby Pottery - a dream job for many I would think. If you want to see more from Jackie why not pop over to her blog
