Bronze stuffed toys...

Happy Wednesday,

I hope everyone enjoyed the new arrivals shows as much as i did, as I may have mentioned this was a departure for me but I really enjoyed changing to making some more simpler and cute cards!  Today I am running my regular monthly workshop at Breedon Priory so another busy day!

Back to today and another sample from this weeks shows I did plan this as a full demo but changed it a little at the last minute so if you want to see how a version of this was made you can on rewind for yesterdays shpts on
