More Fantasy

Good Morning everyone, it actually looks like Spring 'proper' today, a frost to start with but sunny, so hope it's the same your way.

This is a really quick share of a couple of cards using Lavinia and Art Impression stamps and Tim Holtz Distress Inks and subtle reminder of our Fantasy theme at the brand new Stampalot challenge where the winner of April challenge will receive a Cricut machine.

And an update on Anysia who is doing really well in hospital and had her first test run on crutches yesterday. What a difference a week makes, it's really wonderful. She has been so brave and we are hoping she will be home really soon. Azaria is also OK now, apart from stitches, the only down point........apparently there has to be one, is that I have shingles !
