Handmade Backgrounds

Well, I cannot believe how long it has been since I posted on my blog! So unlike me... but I was in the UK for 2 days after my Copenhagen trip and then was off to Chicago again on business and got home Saturday! Sounds glam but hotels and taxi rides is pretty much it - but I met some great people from my company and it was an excellent course so most definitely worth the trip!

So this week the theme for Arty Girlz is handmade backgrounds. I made this card as a spin off from my canvas I made for my best friend Julie - same concept - using vaseline and acrylic paint.... I finished them off just last night (honestly I didn't know the theme). It is in my favourite colour - I really should move away from purples :)

Many thanks for stopping by x
