Hi there!

In case my absence was noted, I've been away on a lovely holiday at my Mother-in-Law's place in Southern France, followed by a week playing catch-up; with washing, baby stuff, washing, stamping, and more washing! I was also lucky enough to do a class with Isabelle Norris, one where I got inky and played with some great sprays and stamps. So here's a tempting list of photos which are waiting patiently to be cropped and uploaded:
-A CJ for UK Stampers, where we are sending a journal plus an unmounted stamp around to ten participants,
-Some ATCs from September's 3 for 3 swap, also on UK Stampers,
-A 'peel-off' challenge, which actually turned out to be quite arty,
-My returned jam ATCs, decorated by the hands of two other people,
-Birthday cards for some babies,
and finally
-Christmas ornaments for yet another swap!

My life is pretty busy at the moment. Like most crafter's I am planning my Christmas obligations already, there isn't much time left, really! My little one is coming up for his first birthday, and we are subtly changing our lifestyle to accommodate our little 'cruiser' (he's not walking yet, but he loves to get around on his feet). I am not crafting every night as I used to (wasn't I lucky to be able to do so before :-)) but I am still photographing all of my work with a view to sharing when I can. So I hope I will get some time very soon to share the above projects, until then, bye for now!

PS Thank you to those who played along with the 2Peas challenge. The winners were Sandy(Colorful) and Jan(Far North) who produced beautiful cards using my tutorial. Follow the link with the class to see their work.

I started 2 emails to you to make sure you were OK, and both times decided you were probably away. Lucky you working with Isa - I'm so jealous!!!

It sounds like a lovely holiday. How wonderful that you were able to take a class from Isa.
