Crop with Kristy Harris

Kristy Harris

Hope you all are OK! Have been away for a two day crop with Kristy Harris, the owner and founder of Far flung Craft! Kristy has also made a wonderful book, Scrapbook Asian Style! We had to make two wonderful creations using a lot of fabric, Asien style. Wow, it was a lot of fun and things that I would never do on my own at home, so to get a chance to do creations like this is fantastic. Here are some pictures!

Skiing Tilda

This little skiing Tilda really reminds me of myself when young in Sweden (without the long blond hair, LOL, more the clothing! In the 60ies we had a lot more snow during the winters than one will have today! This card is for this week's Just Magnolia challenge, a wonderful sketch by Bev. I hope you can see the embossed text?
