Hello my friends.....

Happy New Year :)

I just realised I hadn't put this piece onto my blog,
Last year I was thrilled to be asked to join in on a Stampers Challenge with Australian Cardmaking Stamping & papercraft Vol 14 No5.
Using The Beautiful Darkroom Door DDRS008 Doors Set :)
as you may have worked out, I love these little houses....
I love the shape, it's a really neat shape to work on, My street number is 23 so this little house represents my home, and I'm going to put this little one into a frame :)
It has Lots of Layers, I love using 'Sinamay' at the moment, you can purchase it by the mtr at Spotlight if you are in Australia in the section where all the 'hat making' bits and bobs are.
It's fun to cut, fray, stitch, glue and paint over......
I love this photo, showing you how the words 'peek' through the sinamay :)
One of the great joy's of being in this magazine issue is the wonderful friends who are also published in also, Friends whom I've met through blogging, some I've chatted with via emails, some I've been in swaps with, and two special girls whom I'm on the TSQ design team with,
so lovely to share the pages with all of these sweet girls :)

It's been such a long time since I blogged,
this time of the year is such a special time for us with visitors,
the children on school holidays, swimming lessons and so many holiday activities...

I wish you all A VERY happy New Year,
May it be Blessed from Above x

Hi Gill,
I just love the detail in your work! On this piece the way you have used the looking glass (?) and attached the key really appeals to me.
