Hi Marion,

I recorded the show on my sky box and have JUST gotten around to watching it. Your designs are lovely, and I love that you don't go crazy on your cards, they are so elegant a beautiful. I would really REALLY love to know what the papers are that youhave used on your nifty envelope book, the flowers and trees. They look like something Best Creations would bring out, but I cannot find them. Please PLEASE tell me what they are!! If you sell them, let me know what they are and how much and I'm there!!

Happy December everyone Marion xxx

From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
