A Bit Groovy...

Happy Wednesday,

I am really lucky that when I demo at shows for the Art of Craft I get to work with some fabulous designers and demonstrators such as the Fabulous Maria Simms.  A few weeks ago I asked if I could 'borrow' a piece of parchment she had been creating as a demo, I saw this as a fabulous centre panel from which I could make a card.  The result is shown here.














I love mixing different themes and styles as I have made this piece into a shaker card with snow inside which is only visible in realliufe ( unless you look very carefully!

Enjoy...

    Am afraid parching is not for me, I've just not got the patience for it although you can get gorgeous results if you do have patience!
