Friday Sketchers AND A Wonderful Surprise!

It's the wonderful surprise first, set up by my lovely friend Karen from Charmed who has been there for me every step of the way during my illness. As you will know if you've been following the story, I was booked on a workshop with Tim Holtz last Thursday at Art from the Heart in Harrogate, but I was unable to go because I hadn't recovered enough at that point. Well, get this .......Karen contacted Tim and he sent me a beautiful message last night - what a lovely man he is to do this for me!!! And the biggest thank you to Karen for arranging it all - no one could have a better or more thoughtful friend xxx

The email is printed off and I'm going to make a frame and hang it in my craft room (using Tim's products of course).


In between the grinning from ear to ear I managed this card for the Friday Sketchers Challenge today. Papers are 3 Bugs and Fancy Pants and I kept the card quite simple because of the busy paper. The image is coloured with Copics and is from the Holly and Madison Collection . I added an acetate flower with a big brad and faux stitching. The sentiment is stamped onto the backing paper and cut out.

Have a fantastic Friday and thanks for visiting xx

Im not surprised Tim emailed you after your friend contacted him he is such a nice person. I emailed him prior to his visit to ask if he would donate something he had made to an artist trading card event - he made a gorgeous tag - I wish I could keep it for myself.
Sorry to hear you have not been well. Take care and best wishes - do you think we should start an official Tim Holtz fan club????
