Phew - it's a scorcher, hey?! Seems wrong to be doing all of these festive bits right now, but hey, that's the life of a freelance designer!! (one that does cards and such like anyway!!) Here's some snapshots from my screen today...now to have a go at a little baby art; I've not dabbled in that area for quite some time, and feel it's time for a change! NEXT!!

My gorgeous cousin (and beautiful bestie) is expecting the pitter-patter of tiny feet very soon - I'm sooooo excited, and as a gift to her on her birthday I created a special one-off piece to put up in the nursery....
- we visited her earlier this week and got to see the finished room in all its glory - it is gorgeous....here's a couple of shots I took - you can see the framed artwork above little one's cot....and the bunting and cat cushion are all courtesy of my new venture - Ree-Stitch - specially commissioned pieces to finish the room off nicely....what do you think?
- With only a week to go now until her due date we wish her all the love and luck in the world and cannot wait to meet her little bundle of joy x x x

Here's a little snippet of what I've been working on this week.....
- oh, how I love to think of Christmas and snow in the middle of summer!! ;D
Have a great weekend everyone x x x

Very happy (and relieved) to say that Surtex went pretty well for me this year.....this poinsettia design did particularly well; you will soon be able to find it on cards, tissue paper and party paperware over in the US - keep an eye out if you're over that way! ;D

....Two of my designs in print! I was having a little browse on Pinterest yesterday (as you do!) and stumbled across some of my work that I sold over at Surtex last year - you can find it here from a company called Total Paper in Mexico. It's not very often that I get to see my work published as most of it is overseas, so it was a nice little surprise to find these jumbo gift bags yesterday.....
....I think they've turned out pretty well, don't you? - a little tweak from them here and there, and a splash of foil to add to the mix - here are some snapshots of how the original designs looked:
