ATC's, seaside exchange and Union Jacks

Hi Everyone,
I hope today finds you all well my friends. My Postie has been busy bringing me more lovely crafty post. I recieved my February ATC's from the two Bubble groups. Heather's group had an open theme as usual and I recieved the floral one and the fish from that. Lorraine's Group was an open theme for 2 cards and Luck of the Irish for the single card. So here they are, more welcome additions to my box. It'll soon be time to do the March ones and I'm thinking there will be several Easter ones.

I showed you the Lighthouse I made for the seaside exchange. Here is the gorgeous Lavender filled sachet I recieved from my partner Alison. It's fabulous and I LOVE beach huts. I will be hanging up today without fail.

I persuaded hubby to take me to Hobbycraft on Tuesday and had a little stock up. I picked up some ribbon, felt and a few buttons. We had a look round Webbs which is the Garden Centre that HC is in. they had some lovely gift ideas so I got a bit of inspiration thrown in too.

Once I got back from HC I worked on a couple of ideas for Black Pear I'd been designing. I love some of the Union Jack stuff that is about at the moment so here is my take on it - a hanging decoration and a keyring.

I've been coming up with lots more ideas so I'm going to have a day of experiments and making templates for the new ideas. Hopefully I'll have something to show you soon.
thanks for stopping by to read. xx
