The first was a set of three original photocard illustrations from Gabrielle in Canada. They are so beautiful that I don't think I could actually use them, frame them perhaps. I love the altered tag she made too. What a talented lady and you can see lots more wonderful things on her blog 'Gabrielle Madsen, the result of my inspirations'
I also received a pack of assorted papers from Tara here in the UK in West Yorkshire. I love the black cat piece you can see sticking out. You may not be able to see it, but to the right of the cat's head there is a label which was stuck on the back of Tara's packet - it has a picture of a hedgehog on and reads "I'm not scruffy. I'm recycled" What a brilliant idea. I always try to re-use packets where possible and must admit to having quite a collection in my craft cupboard - along with several other 'collections' - but I guess if you are reading this you may have a few yourself!
Tara also has a lovely blog called 'Sew Gorgeous' with lots of interesting things on and is well worth a visit.
Thank you again, Gabrielle and Tara and not forgetting Lisa too.
