To Melt Your Heart

Another post with beautiful gifts, this time from Nancy Maxwell James. Nancy is renowned in the crafting world but if any of you haven’t visited her Blog then please do so as her art melts the heart. Sharing with you two pieces that will do just that. Pretty pastels bring sweetness to this collage. Isn’t the image adorable?
This is how lucky I am, Nancy also sent this mitten decoration. It catches the light with the scattering of mica and of course there is lace a plenty and buttons and pearls. Nancy never fails to have a delicate touch with all her creations.
To Nancy, thank you again for these sweet treasures.  As anyone else who has your art knows, it brings such pleasure.
One last note, Nancy’s latest on-line class, Heartstrings, is due to commence on 22nd of January. Click the link on my sidebar if you are interested.
A little reminder that the first Stampsmith Challenge of 2012 is underway with the theme of Tag Art and at Fashionable Stamping Challenge the  New Stash theme is in its last few days with a new theme announced this coming Sunday. Both those challenges have prizes up for grab so it is well worth entering and if you want more details you will find the buttons for both challenges on the sidebar.
I will return later today with a new post but until then,

    Stampsmith Challenge 2012 should be no problem to you Lynne. You are an expert at Tag Art. Wouldn’t be surprised if you win it.

      I cannot participate as I am hosting the challenge. As a DT members we take turns at hosting the challenge.
      Wanted to clarify that in case it caused confusion for others.
