Monday Sneak Peek!

 A warm welcome to my friends and followers. Well, it was all excitement and great flapping of wings in Magpieheaven last night! Thank you so much for the kind and encouraging comments both on this blog and over at Paper Artsy. I appreciated every one and they did wonders for my 'stage-fright'! I hadn't quite realized how nervous I would feel until that hour of seven approached and Darcy reminded everyone that the clock was ticking away toward the next Paper Artsy new GD being announced! Clare Lloyd had really captured our imaginations, especially with her lovely little quirky art doll and she was a hard act to follow! I was particularly flattered by Lucy's observation that it was like waiting to see which Trumpton character it would be on 'Watch with Mother'. Well, I so hope I didn't disappoint! I don't think even a venerable and loved Trumpton character could have been made more welcome than I was by the lovely people at Paper Artsy and by all of you.
I hope you will be able to play along with me and that you will have time to flit over to Paper Artsy tonight and see what's inside the Renaissance casket!
Here is a sneak peek, but you can see the whole thing HERE. Have a lovely evening!
Love and warmest thanks for your support,
Julie Ann x
