birds song I love this quote by Henry Van Dyke, it is of great encouragement to those of us who are less than perfect. We have to work with what God’s given us, and constantly stretch ourselves to be the best that WE can be.  I feel that my gift is my imagination and it is my joy to share that with others and let my little light shine, no matter how dimly.

Sometimes I set myself little challenges to use a particular stamp, product or paper that I’ve had a while. I always keep the front cover page from Basic Grey packs I buy as they’re lovely and matt and of course co-ordinate beautifully. The squares are quite tiny though – which is the challenging part. I decided to use the paper pieces with Stamp-it’s “What a Hoot” si2733D stamp, which is not what I would classify a flexible image, but by changing colour schemes and layout, you can achieve quite different looking end results.
