The true harvest of life is is in the tints of the morning and is in the stardust caught...a segment of the rainbow.

I made this card for a friend Evelyn who just loves dragonflies. This technique was one of Trish Bayley's challenges a few months ago. Thanks Trish, I love this look, I just love any way to use the colours of the rainbow.

I have made this canvas to send to Vickie's family. They have asked for friends and customers of hers to send artwork to put in her home in her memory. The stamp that I have used on this canvas was one which I ordered from Vickie and which she posted to me the day before she passed away. I received the package several days later.
It seemed like just the perfect stamp to use and a great way to honour her memory.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Vickie Enkoff who died overnight in USA. Only a week ago, she announced that she would be selling her stamp business because of her ongoing health problems. She will be sadly missed by her family, friends and online communities where she was much loved.

I've had a lovely day today, spent most of the day in my workshop making some cards for friends. This is one that I made for Nola who has just had open heart surgery. Hope that she likes it, I'm guessing that she will. The message in this card is inside the smaller section which is tied with the ribbon.

It's been hard to get back here to my blog due to having lots of things on since I returned from the Stamping Marathon. I spent a wonderful week with my stamping friends, not only being creative, but doing what we all love best, shopping!! So I have returned home with lots of new treasures to play with, and lots and lots of new stamps to get inky. I did some Classes/Make and takes while I was there and this picture is from one of the classes. It's so nice to have the chance to get away for such a lovely week. We had a very long drive up there and thanks so much to my friend Chris for taking Dawn and I in her gorgeous new Lexus, and to the wonderful Bethel for her hospitality while I was there and Eveyln who treated us all with much love and care as well. Shame to have to come back to earth after such a wonderful week away.
