What a difference a day makes .... oh I could burst into song there couldn't I? But don't worry I won't.... I mean with the weather, after yesterday's torrnetial rain and gale force winds today we have beautiful sunshine although it is bitterly cold.


I went to my stitching club yesterday and took along some cards I had made with my new stamps. This beautiful Thomas Kinkade stamp was much admired and one of the ladies asked me to make an identical one for her, no problem there.

The next request was for this Penny Black "Snowy Park" card, the lady in question wants one as a birthday card for her "young man" who will be 80 early next year!! So far so good, she then asked if I could do it in Sepia .... no problem, but now comes the difficult bit ..... could I make it bigger and perhaps with a few more trees?!! You try to explain to a seventy something lady that a stamp is a stamp and can't be enlarged!! Anyway I have offered to make a couple of cards up to show her, I thought perhaps a bit of matting and layering could give the impression of "bigger". I shall get the little grey cells working and see what I can come up with...... watch this space!
