Sharing space with Tim..............




................or at least as close as I can ever hope to get to the man himslef !

I don't usually make too much noise when I get work published as it can seem a bit egotistical, but when someone mentioned I was sharing a spread with 'him' I had to go buy the magazine (Crafts Beautiful) and check it out for myself and I am totally tickled pink as sure enough it's all there in their Good Impressions feature............you can tell it don't take a lot to make me do the happy dance.

Now if only I could emulate his stunning inspirational pieces of artwork I would be doing more than a happy dance.

So little things and all that but thought I would share.

Desire Fourie said...

Oh wow Brenda. You are sooooo talented and should be published all the time. So happy for you and now I can also say I know someone famous!. As I said yesterday leaving a comment on your card that has been published, its one of my favourite designs of yours as I can really relate to the little farm scene. You must enjoy lapping up the honour.
Happy Valentines Day

What fabulous news Brenda and can see why you're tickled pink as I would be too.
Your creations are just as good but in a different way as he bet he couldn't do artwork like yours!

So pleased for you, Brenda. You must be thrilled to bits. Honestly, though, I would be more interested in seeing your page spread than Tim's. I'm not a fan of grunge. But I do love to see your work, especially your beautiful scenes! Congratulations on being featured! xx

LizM said...

Hi Brenda - Congratulations! Pleased you're so pleased but please know you are extremely inspirational yourself! & for me personally, I much prefer your cards. The Great Man is just a little too grungey for my taste - but he does have some fab ideas.
Like others have said before me - your cards are fantastic & so varied; I love checking out your blog & seeing what you've come up with each time.
Keep up the marvellous work!
all the best, Liz M x
